The Rwenzoris – also known as the fabled “Mountains of the Moon” – lie in Western Uganda along the Congo border. Their snow-capped equatorial peaks rise to a height of 5,109m, while lower slopes are blanketed in moorland and rich montane forest. Most of the Park is accessible only to hikers although the magnificent scenery and 19 Albertine Rift endemics would be ample reward for bird lovers. Rwenzori Mountains National Park protects the eastern slopes and glacial peaks of the 120km long range, and is a world-class hiking and mountaineering destination. A nine-day trek will get skilled climbers to the summit of Margherita – the highest peak – though shorter, non-technical treks are possible to scale the surrounding peaks.
