Mountains and Mountains and lots more mountains, snow covered peaks, glaciers on the equator, yet there are two factors that prevent many people from visiting this fantastic, tallest mountain range in all of Africa - Time and Money. In most cases people take a 7 day journey through the mountains can cost just for the hike and fees over 800 dollars USD per person. That does not include the transport and extra things needed. We get many requests for the Rwenzori Mountains but the price and the time factors involved limit people from enjoying this fabulous region of Uganda, plus you will need a lot of less equipment and supplies.
