Overview

The once-in-a-lifetime Rwenzori Summit Trek in the Rwenzori Mountain National Park is a stunning and challenging trek that takes between 7 and 8 days to complete. During this trek, we climb all the major peaks: Portal Peaks, Mt. Gessi, Mt. Emin, Margherita Peak, and Mt. Speke. Very experienced hikers can complete the trek in 6 to 7 days, however, for most others we factor in one day of rest to acclimatize to the altitude and finish the trek in 7 to 8 days.
