My wife and I went to the park expecting to find vistas and scenic walks like those in the advertisements; unfortunately you can hardly see anything from the main gate. Furthermore, once you pay the park entry fee (we avoided this with a special pass)...More

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.

We did the 8 day Margherita peak trek. We were very lucky as the weather was nice except the summit day. The guides are generally nice guys and will tell you different things about the mountains and local culture. They are very very fit but...More

I spent 2 days in the Rwenzori Mountains in June with Rwenzori Mountaineering services (based in Nyakalengija). It was an amazing hike I can only recommend. If you can afford more time, it is worth extending, because it is hard to get to high altitudes...More

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.
