Mountain Climbing in Mount Stanley, Rwenzori, Uganda
Mount Stanley is one of the ‘’Big Five’’ mountain masses of Africa (M. Meru-Tanzania, M. Kenya-Kenya, Ras Dashen-Ethiopia, Kilimanjaro). This extreme challenge starts even before climbing starts! Four days walking through the jungle needed for reaching the mountain. Nine days lasts the circular route to hike the peak.
The starting point is in Nyakalengija, within the Rwenzori National park. The icy cliffs and the muddy ground along with the high altitude make this trail a thrilling adventure. Along the route, numerous huts offer lodge. In the heart of Africa, hiking icy summits can be only a lifetime experience! To climb on Margherita peak together with your ‘wellies’, get ready your crampons!
