Margherita Peak at 5,109 meters on Mt Stanley in the Uganda Mountain Hiking adventure is Africa’s third highest mountain, however the real beauty is in the climb up the Kilembe route, the forests and valleys, the flora is diverse from giant heather trees and valleys of ferns. Climbing Margherita Peak is now technical due to the ever increasing number of crevasses.

However scaling the actual peak is more of a hard scramble than a climb and when it snows it is difficult however the rewards and exhilaration of reaching the top is enormous as you look across Albert Peak to the DRC (Congo) then east across the spectra of the Rwenzori Mountains.

Uganda Mountain Hiking Safari – Rwenzori Mountains

The Rwenzori Mountains are located on the border of Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Although the isolated volcanoes of Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Kenya are taller, they are the highest range of mountains in Africa with the highest summit of Mt. Stanley reaching 5109 meters. When the peaks were first explored at the end of the 19th century, there were six separate massifs that held glaciers on their flanks. At this point, the number has dwindled down to just three, with one of those holding only tattered remnants of its earlier glaciations.

NOTE; Yes it is possible to climb in seven days and some clients do insist on seven days, however it should be noted that climbing more than 500 meters a day brings a bigger risk of altitude sickness, high altitude pulmonary edema or high altitude cerebral edema and all of which are dangerous. It is better to take it slower and lessen that risk and yes some people have climbed many mountains but unless you have climbed in the previous two weeks the benefits of those climbs are not there as it is the increased number of red blood cells in your blood which carry oxygen around your body. So while we can offer seven day treks we recommend the eight day trek to be on the safer side.
