Itinerary

Day 1Entebbe - Rwenzori Mountain National Park

Have an early morning after breakfast and then you will commence on your Rwenzori Mountain Hiking Safari to Rwenzori Mountain National Park trail head at Nyakalengija. Go through Kampala to Fort Portal where you will stop over for a lunch en route. Later, proceed to Mihunga lodge to relax and prepare for your hiking to Rwenzori the next day.

Day 2Trek to Nyabitaba (2650m ASL)

Procede to the Nyakalengija trail head (1600m) where the Uganda Wildlife Authority will provide an informative briefing prior to commencing the trek. Walk past Bakonjo homesteads dwarfed by steep foothills and banana plantations. Follow the trail along the Mubuku River to cross the Mahoma River before climbing steadily through Podocarpus forest.

Day 3Trek to John Matte Hut (3350m ASL)

After breakfast, depart from Nyabitaba early, along a small trail dropping down through the forest to Kurt Shafer Bridge, just below the convergence of the Bujuku and Mubuku Rivers. The forest gradually turns into a bamboo zone where the trail is slippery and moss-covered. A zone of giant heather, lobelia, and groundsel vegetation emerges before Nyamileju rock shelter before traversing a bog to the hut.

Day 4Trek to Bujuku Hut (2900m ASL)

The trail crashes down to cross the Bujuku River and enters Lower Bigo Bog, home of giant lobelias. Cross the bog to the Upper Bigo bog before continuing to Lake Bujuku where views of the highest mountain – Stanley – to the west are seen.

Day 5Trek to Elena Hut (4541m ASL)

After Bujuku, the boggy trail climbs the slopes west of the lake, passing through the paranormal groundsel gully. Ascend to Scott-Elliot Pass (4372m). A metal ladder takes you over an extremely steep section after which the trail branches, the right leads up to Elena Hut and Mt. Stanley over a steep rocky trail, while the left leads to Scott-Elliot Pass and down to Lake Kitandara at the base of Stanley Glacier.

Day 6Ascent to Mount Stanley (5109m ASL) and to Kitandara Hut (4027m ASL)

For those who do not wish to climb the peak, spend a more restful day walking from Elena Hut (4541m) to Lake Kitandara (4023m). For those who wish, but also depending on altitude sickness, visibility, climbing ability, and acclimatization, climb a further three hours to Margherita peak (5109m) and later down to Kitandara Hut. Trek to Elena glacier, before moving on to the Stanley Plateau. Climb and scramble to Margherita summit, the highest point of the Rwenzori. Use of crampons and ropes may well be necessary. Be prepared for a tough, arduous time in the mountains. Return to the Scott-Elliot pass, view the magical Bujuku Lake, and Mt. Speke at a distance, continue down to Lake Kitandara.

Day 7Trek to Guy Yeoman Hut (3260m ASL)

After breakfast, go on a steep climb from the base of Mt. Baker to the south side of the mountain to the Fresh field Pass (4280m). Views into the Congo to the west and Mt. Stanley to the north are possible. From the pass, the boggy trail continues downwards, passing the rock shelter at Bujangolo, the base camp for the historic expedition by the Duke of Abruzzi in 1906.

Day 8Trek to Nyakalengiija Trail Head (1600m ASL)

Morning breakfast and load up on the equipment. Later, the porters and the climbing partly descend out of the Mountains. Trekking will be through a 6-hour walk that goes past the nearby Lake Mahoma and Nyabitaba and passes through the heather area and the Moss Zone. This may be the final hut in the Rwenzori Mountains or you could exit all the way if you feel energetic.

Drive to Entebbe Airport for your flight back home.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however.
