The second option is trekking the central circuit that takes 8 days up to Margarita peak (5109m)
Ruboni community will organize your three days two nights trek on Mahoma trail. Majority of Uganda tour operators organize this 8 days Margarita trek. Please feel free contact us if you need suggestion of the tour operator who can manage your Margarita trek or any other Rwenzori trekking tours to the higher peaks.
Other trekking options are the one day nature walks. These can be organized by Ruboni community camp in partnership with the national park rangers. These walks will take you into the park and you return to the base camp on the same day. For options that involve enjoying the Rwenzori without entering into the park, Ruboni community camp has two optional village treks that include a forest walk and a hill climb walk.
