The highest peak is Margherita, 5.109 m. on Mt. Stanley. It is named after the Italian Queen Margherita, who sponsored the first climbing expedition of the Rwenzori in June 1906, led by Prince Luigi Amedeo of Savoy the Duke of Abruzzi. The name “Rwenzori” in the local language means “mountain of the rain”, for its rainy nature.

The Rwenzori trekking.

We offer the opportunity to experience the Rwenzori Mountains in its vegetation zones and rich biodiversity for both unexperienced trekkers and expert trekkers. We follow the most scenic and organized route currently available, which is the Kilembe Trail, inaugurated in 2009, giving the chance to climb all the main peaks or spending quality time in some of the most beautiful areas of the Rwenzori, thanks to the presence of mountaineering Huts or camps.

In particular, we offer a shorter circuit of 3 days 2 nights covering 24 km of forest cover and some lobelia garden to maximum of 3174 m altitude at Samalia Camp.

Another option is the 5 days 4-night trekking covering 40 km loop to Weiseman Peak (4.620 m). Both these short options can be considered as possible extensions to other programs in Uganda.

The full circuit to Margherita Peak is an 8 days 7 nights trekking, totaling 11 days’ package starting and ending at Entebbe International Airport.

The best period to climb the Rwenzori.

It is clear to all that the climatic seasons are changing characteristics in recent years, however it is still advisable to climb the Rwenzori especially during the dry seasons, between December and March, between June and July, between September and October.

Are you ready for the climbing?

The trekking and climbing of the Rwenzori, though technically not difficult for any trekker or alpinist in the lower stages, however has its great challenges. The trail is long and tiresome as it lasts up to 8 days to make it to the peak. It requires endurance and physical fitness, at least some previous training.

The final ascent to the Margherita Peak presents a glacier area and requires some technical equipment and knowledge like the use of rope and crampons and use of ice axe (with ice sections of 60% steepness due to climatic changes in the glacier). The guides will help you acquire some experience as you climb up especially using crampons, ropes, harnesses, figure 8 and carabiners.

For the full list of the required equipment, please see the technical check list and the detailed technical sheet.

Trekking options:

OPTION 1: Margherita Peak full circuit package 11 days 10 nights
