The Mountain Rwenzori National Park is located in western Uganda in the East African Rift Valley and also borders the Democratic Republic of Congo and its protected area known as Virunga National Park. The Rwenzori National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, stretches over almost 1000 square kilometers and is known for its beautiful flora coupled with waterfalls, glaciers and a host of other unique mountain vegetation. The park has glaciers, snowfields, waterfalls and is known as one of the most attractive alpine areas in the world. Our 8-day Rwenzori trekking tour does not take you to one of the peaks that can only be climbed by experienced mountaineers with the appropriate equipment. We stay at a maximum altitude of 4500 meters and hike through the different vegetation zones.
