Itinerary

Day 1The central circuit

The central circuit is a 9 day hike effort starting from the village of Nyakalengijja, along the central Mubuku river valley. This river gashes swiftly from the melting glaciers.
The circuit passes through 4 different vegetational zones; the forest zone, the Bamboo zone, the Ericaceous belt the Heath and with altitudinal difference of 2800m or 3500m when on the Margherita peak. You will be guided gradually to overcome the mountain sickness that comes due to gain in altitude as you acclimatize. The Rwenzori Mountaineering services organize the Hiking, providing porters and professional guides. Up to 25kg per person can be carried, porter services can be arranged. Huts along the circuits are basic providing mattresses and drinking water. It’s advisable to carry sleeping bags, Jungle boots rain gears as it can rain any time. You may as well carry some glucose and climbing sticks. Dark shades are important at higher altitude when close to the glaciers. You will be guided back and transferred to Kampala/Entebbe for your outbound flight back to home. When to go:
Dry season periods are best between June to September and December & March.
