Kazingo Trail

Kazingo Trail – Rwenzori Mountaineering & Expeditions.

According to the reservation experts at Rwenzori Expeditions , the real appeal of the Rwenzori lies, arguably, not in the joy of reaching the top, but in the opportunity to hike through superb mountain scenery enlivened by equatorial snow and outlandish vegetation. With this in mind, shorter hikes to lesser peaks are becoming increasingly popular like the hike via the 3 old trails that are  used to summit that is Rwenzori Central Circuit , Bukurungu Trail & Kilembe Trail.
The Rarely used is the Kazingo Trail which is found in the Rwenzori Mountains along the route to Bundibugo road after Fort portal city

kazingo Trail

The Kazingo Trail enables a day-long traverse of the north Rwenzori ridge between the Fort Portal plateau and Bundibugyo town in the Semliki Valley on the west side of the mountain.

To reach the shorter route of Kazingo Trail, follow the surfaced Bundibugo road out for Fort Portal for 9km, then turn left at Bukuku for 5km.

The most notorious itinerary is the one linking Kazingo (13 km west of Fort Portal) to Bundibugyo, at the foot of the western slope of Rwenzori mountain. This crossing of 1 or 2 days allows you to discover the local fauna, flora and culture.
