Let's enjoy the wonders of Rwenzori together
Welcome to the famous Mountains of the Moon
- a paradise of pristine nature in the heart of Albert Rift Valley
where every night is winter and every day is summer...
The 3 days trek takes you through the pristine rainforest of kyambogho ridge with a view of the Mubuku Valley.
The heavily forested ridge is home to many primates, such as black and white Colobus monkey, blue monkey and occasionally the L'hoest monkey. From here you will enjoy the magnificent views over the Rwenzori foothills and Kasese town 2,160 meters below.
This 4-6 days trail is a gem and really offers all the spectalular attractions of the Rwenzori Range. It has sevral options for exstension.
"...on this day if the weather is clear, your eyes and hands on the camera will have all the main peaks of Edward on Mount Baker, Margherita and Alexandra on Mount Stanley, Vittorio Emanuela on Mount Speke, Kihuma on the Portal Peaks and Mount Gessi at glance."
The 7-9 days trek/climbing takes you through fantastic landscapes and all the way to the summit of Mt. Margerita.
The summit of Margherita climbing takes about 5-7 hours depending on the weather conditions and the pace of climbing this mountain. This tough walk takes you over three glaciers, slippery rock, ice and very exposed areas which are open on many sides.
Mountains of the Moon
Rwenzori is a wonderland of glacier-carved valleys filled with pristine afro montane forests, colourfull mosses and giant forms of lobelias, groundsels and heathers. The mist-shrouded peaks of the Mountains of the Moon provide a stunning backdrop to this magnificent park, located on Uganda’s western border.
Here is the third highest mountain in Africa, Mt. Magherita, which rises to 5,109 metres above sea level. This is Uganda's most dramatic and scenic region. Between Lake Albert in the North and Lake George in the South, the terrain rises above the plains of the Semiliki Valley to the snow capped summits.
