Mount Rwenzori hiking trips

Day 2: Climb Nyabitaba through Bakonjo Farmsteads
After an early morning breakfast, hike to Nyakalengija trailhead (1600m) in the company of a guide and porters. Hiking up to Nyabitaba hut, walk through the banana sambas on the side of the steep foothills, past the typical Bakonjo farmsteads. Then, we follow the trail along the Mubuku River, via landslides up and down rocks and bluffs, traverse the Mahoma River and climb steeply through break fern slopes and podocarpus forest to Nyabitaba Hut. Dinner and overnight at Nyabitaba Hut (FB)

Day 3: Nyabita – Nyamileju – John Matte
Have your breakfast and then continue on the Nyabitaba route, which descends through the forest to the Kurt Shafer Bridge, which is located directly beneath the point where the Bujuku and Mubuku Rivers merge.
Continue moving uphill through the bamboo forest, then negotiate a strenuous length of slick, moss-covered rock.
Lunch should be consumed in Nyamileju Hut.
To avoid getting trapped in the relatively moist ground, continue hiking to the foot of the mass of tussock grass.
Arrive at John Matte Camp for your meal and overnight stay after 7 hours of walking.
