Ruwenzori Mountains

December 4, 2019
Uganda Parks

The fabled Mountains of The Moon lie in Western Uganda on the Congolese border, with snow-covered, equatorial peaks rising to height of 5110 m and lower slopes blanketed in moorland and rich montane forest. Most of the park is accessible to hikers with magnificent scenery and 19 Albertine Rift endemics, amongst them; Rwenzori Turaco and Shelleys Crimson wing, would be ample reward for the intrepid, backpacking birder.

The Rwenzori Mountains have been selected as one of the Worlds Best Hikes by National Geographic!
