Unfortunately, we only spent a few hours in the entrance area os the park but this was already breath taking. Next time we will come back with more time and do one of the 3 or 5 days trips. Highly recommended.

The Rwenzoris are the most scenic hike in and around east and central Africa. You cross multi climatic zones, the wonder of snow quite near the equator, the lakes and streams. The guides are fantastic.

Before setting off on mountaineering, there's always recommended boots to ware so nothing to worry about as you'll always be advised on putting on the best gears.

I was in Rwenzori recently and I can also recommend Rwenzori Trekking Services. They are great with great guides. If you want, you can contact me and I recommend you to my friend working there.
