Interested in Mountaineering, trekking or hiking? The snow – covered Equatorial peaks are located in Western Uganda, along the border with The Democratic republic of Congo. Made up of the Rwenzori Ranges, Africa’s tallest mountain range.

The distinctive glacial Rwenzori Mountain peaks are famous to hikers, who regard the mountain as the most challenging of all African mountains. The trails lead through the rain forest rattling with monkeys and birds, tall bamboo forests, before emerging on the high altitude moorland zone. This snow-capped mountain has an elevation reaching 5,109m, Africa’s third highest peak.
