Rwenzori Mountains

The fabled Rwenzori Mountain National Park (locally known as the ‘Mountains of the Moon’) are one of Uganda’s UNESCO heritage sites lying in western Uganda along the border of D.R. Congo, where the snow-covered equatorial peaks rise to the height of 5109m and the lower slopes are blanketed in moorland and rich montane forest. Most of the park is accessible only by hikers although magnificent scenery and 19 Albertine rift endemics would be ample reward for birders

Rwenzori Mountain National Park

The mist-shrouded Rwenzori ranges and shadowy slopes shall call your attention, curiosity and respect. At more than 5000m high, the ranges are among Africa’s highest. Visit Rwenzori Mountains National Park means having a good pair of hiking boots. This is the only way to appreciate glaciers, rivers, waterfalls and lakes. The mountains are homelands to the Bakonzo and Bamba people. The Bakonzo have lived here for countless generations. Their culture is adapted to the steep slopes and climate. That is why they also make the best guides and porters.

There are five different vegetation zones found in the Rwenzori mountains. Expect to be amazed by the scenic views of the different craters found around the Rwenzori mountain ranges as you come across a host of unusual plants and flowers worthy of a snapshot. This idyllic place attracts some of the most colourful butterflies and birds in the world.
High and regular rainfall in the mountains means bountiful supplies of all foodstuffs especially fruits and vegetables like pumpkins, watermelons, pineapples and Irish potatoes. You will never taste some of these varieties.
