Rwenzori Mountains

RWENZORI MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK UGANDA

The 120 km Rwenzori chain is regarded to be the legendary snow-capped Mountains of the Moon, described by Ptolemy in AD150. Reaching an elevation of 5,109m at its highest peak, it is also Africa’s tallest mountain range, exceeded in altitude only by the free-standing Mount Kenya and Kilimanjaro.

The distinctive glacial peaks are visible for miles around, but the slopes above 1,600m are the preserve of hikers, who rate the Rwenzoris to be the most challenging of all African mountains.

A variety of large mammals inhabits the lower slopes, but the Rwenzoris are notable more for their majestic scenery and varied vegetation. The trails lead through rainforest rattling with monkeys and birds, and then tall bamboo forest, before emerging on the high-altitude moor land zone, a landscape of bizarre giant lobelias, towered over by black rock and white snow, looking just like the set of a science fiction film.

If you like mountaineering, then the Margharita peak, towering at 5,109 metres, snow covered, will offer you the unique experience you’ve been looking for – The Range is also known as the ‘mountains of the moon’ and protected as Rwenzori Mountains National Park which is also a World Heritage Centre. The mist-shrouded peaks provide stunning back drops to this magnificent mountain. Ever since the Rwenzori became known to the World, its features have been changing.

Today, the most visible and probably preventable, changes in the Rwenzori are the fragile vegetation along the trails. A trip into the Rwenzoris is an exhilarating and rewarding experience, but one which must be planned. The key to an enjoyable visit is ‘be prepared!’ You can do the central circuit in just 7 days and our excellent guides will be there to add flavour to your experience.

The few who have climbed this mountain have promised to come back, if you are an excellent hiker, looking for a lifetime adventure, the mountains of the moon are just your choice.
