If you were given the chance to trek through lush jungle, driven on by the thought of snow capped peaks; to pick your way through a lunar landscape coloured by plants seemingly taken from a child’s imagination; or ice climb to see the curvature of the earth as it meets the heart of Africa – would you take it?

Trekking in the Rwenzori Mountains, at a glance

  • There are two types of hiking experiences in the Rwenzoris: high altitude and low altitude. The low altitude treks won’t take you beyond 4,000 metres and typically last 2-4 days. High altitude treks take you to the peaks above 4,000 metres, and last between 4-12 days. 
  • The Rwenzoris can be visited as a standalone adventure, but they’re often combined with other destinations along Uganda’s south-west circuit, including Kibale National ParkQueens, and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
  • Accommodation is in basic wooden huts that have been constructed along the trails, each fitted with bunk beds and a separate toilet huts. 
  • The Rwenzoris are home to Uganda’s highest point: Margherita Peak (5,109m) on Mount Stanley. If you want to summit Margherita Peak, you will need to spend a minimum of 7 days in the mountains.
