Rwenzori Mountains Climbing Hiking

Uganda Mountain HikingRwenzori Mountains National Park, which is now also a World Heritage Site, contains six of Africa’s 10 highest mountains, most of them higher than the tallest Alps. Yet to most bucket-list hikers they are largely unknown, overshadowed by Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya, Africa’s two highest mountains.

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 glaciation. The “Rwenzori ranges” area covers 2 National parks; Rwenzori Mountain National Park in Uganda and Virunga National park in DR Congo. The highest point is Margherita Peak on Mount Stanley (5,109m) however other high peaks include Mount Baker (4,843), Mount Speke (4,890), Mount Emin (4,798m), Mount Gessi(4,715m) and mount Luigi(4,627m) which also offer a very worthwhile adventure as well.

The mountains peaks are covered with Glaciers which is about half of the total number in Africa. This in addition to Lakes, Waterfalls, Unique Vegetation and wildlife gives it a clear edge as the best mountain to climb in Africa.
