Climbing Mount Rwenzori is one of the tough adventures anyone could undertake in Uganda. The Rwenzori being a mountain range, it means that reaching the top goes through many literal up and down trails. This isn’t the same case for regular mountains where the ascent to the summits means climbing only. What all this means is that Rwenzori Mountains are harder to climb – even though the highest peak ranks third in Africa.
Hiking the Rwenzoris
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.
