Climbing Rwenzori Mountains through the Ibanda gate starts at Nyakalengijo headquarters (1615m). Through this trail (gate) one can do two optional treks. The first option is, trekking the Mahoma trail loop whose highest point is at 3515m and which takes three days two nights. The second option is trekking the central circuit that takes 7 days (central circuit) or 8 days (up to Margarita peak – 5109m)
Ruboni Community Camp will organize and provide porters, experienced interpretive guides on a trek to both the three days two nights trek on Mahoma trail or on the 7 days central circuit trail that can also go up to Margarita peak (8 days).
Other trekking options are the one-day nature walks. These can be organized by the Ruboni community camp in partnership with the National Park rangers. There are several options to choose from. Each walk will take you into the park and you return to the base camp on the same day. For those willing to enjoy the Rwenzori without entering into the park, the Ruboni community camp has three interesting village guided tours that include a forest walk, a hill-climb trek up to 2400m on the community peak, and a village walk.
