Need to Know

The climb involves an $80 permit. A guide and armed guard are mandatory. The climb takes place in a rainforest, so it is always wet.

Description

This 4 mile trail (8 miles out-and-back) will lead you to a volcanic summit, in which you'll be standing in three countries at the same time (DRC, Rwanda, and Uganda). After some lower slopes, you'll be head toward unstable wooden ladders and eventually almost vertical stairs. There are three peaks to conquer with this route, all while dealing with being over 10,000 feet.
