Classic Mountain Hiking Adventures in Uganda's Rwenzoris, Mount Elgon and Mgahinga Volcanoes.
Magherita Peak - Rwenzori Mountains
Uganda is a unique safari destination to hikers who are interested in climbing and trekking over small hills, medium sized and high mountains. The snow capped Rwenzoris, famed in ancient times as the mountains of the moon, running along the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo, have now been developed and opened to travelers interested in climbing not only the tallest ranges of Africa but also of the world as well.
The Rwenzoris offer some exceptional walking to both trekkers at lower altitudes as well as mountaineers who would like to meet the challenge of ascending to the glacial peaks of over 5100 metres.
In the eastern part o the country Mt. Elgon with its caldera is quite another popular destination for medium and high climbers. It is actually a heavily forested ancient volcano with its base covering an area of more than 3000sq km. Though the mountain straddles at the Kenyan border, its peak (Wagagai peak) is found on the Ugandan side. This presents a wonderful mountaineering experience to tourists who are ever interested in attempting to the highest peak.
