Hiking on Mt Rwenzori in Uganda 5 Days 4 Nights

The "central circuit" trail of Rwenzori is the main hiking activity which people undertake when visiting the mountain range. The trip begins from Entebbe or Kampala. It consists of a hike lasting 4 nights and 5 days, starting from the headquarters of the Rwenzori Mountains National Park at Nyakalengija. Then the trail follows a circular path around Mount Baker, spending the night in 3 different Huts, and reaching a maximum altitude of 3600 M. at Bujuku Hut and back to Kampala.

The circuit gives the opportunity to see very close the peaks and glaciers of Mount Speke, Mount Stanley.. Everybody is able to manage the hike, as the level of difficulty is not so high. The central circuit is the best experience of Rwenzori, its landscape and vegetations.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud

It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:

  • It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
  • If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
  • Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
