The Snow capped Mt Rwenzori is breathtaking and I would recommend it for Hikers. Its ranges stretching through more than 100kms is amazing. Margherita peak is the highest and snow can be seen on clear morning hours.

My clients climbed the mountain for 4 days but the only problem was that it was raining almost the whole journey up and down the mountain. But all in all, they enjoyed it so much. Great achievement for them

I took a 3 days trekking to see how the forest feels like. I didnt have too much time and money but it was an unique experience. Getting through all the different plant zones I felt like going back to prehistoric times (4 meters tall fern!). Along with my guide we were looking for chimpanzees, but didnt manage to spot... More

We were a team of tour guides with our clients but we were all amazed with the type of plants that are really surviving under the mountain climate....the journey is so rewarding

I have just returned from a 10-day trek with the RTS (Rwenzori Trekking Services) where a group of 7 of us spent 5 days trekking into the wonderful landscape that is the Mountains of the Moon, before spending a day reaching the highest summit, the Margherita Peak of Mount Stanley. This Summit Day was spectacular - setting off on a... More

hiking through the green vegetation especially at the mountain base is an amazing green world experience and looking on to the porto peaks is magical!

This is a spectacular place tucked away in a remote corner of Uganda, bordering Congo. The view of the mountain range as you drive towards it from Fort Portal is Awsome!! This range borders Uganda and Congo. A village nestled just at the foot of these mountains is rustic and has just the bare necessities for travelers. Ask for hotel... More
