Rwenzori Mountain National Park

Rwenzori Mountains National Park

Africa’s highest mountain range, the 5,100 metre Mountains of the Moon is the snowy source of the Nile referred to by the early geographers. This is a montane wonderland, the trails to the snow peaks following glacier-carved valleys led with fantastically colored mosses and rare Afro-alpine plants that include giant forms of lobelias, heathers and groundsels. Expeditions use a chain of basic huts and campsites to ascend the mountain from Kilembe and Nyakalengija.
