Rwenzori expeditions suspends Margherita Peak Hike

According to the press release dated on 14th May , Uganda wildlife authority Relations officer released a document to the public that Margherita peak will be closed temporarily for a given period of time as they fix the ladders to the point that got issue.

The Cheptegei peak was named after the campaign that was done by UTB  to take Joshua Cheptegei hike to Rwenzori. The Uganda Wildlife authority recommended travelers to explore other peaks on Mount Rwenzori like the Cheptegei peak , Edward peak and Victoria Emmeunal peak.

Rwenzori Trekking Cheptegei peakWhile closing Margherita Peak visits , Bashir stated that the safety and well-being of visitors are paramount, and the installation of a permanent ladder at a strategic location on the right side of the Margherita Glacier is being explored as an alternative route to ensure safer passage for hikers to Margherita Peak.


For the time being , Rwenzori Expeditions has informed clients that had booked their visit to Rwenzori’s Margherita peak to select the picturesque peaks within Rwenzori Mountains National Park. Mount Speke, Mount Baker, and Cheptegei Peak on the Stanley Range offer breathtaking views and unique experiences amidst the stunning landscape of the park. These alternative routes promise unforgettable adventures while ensuring the safety of hikers.

Recommendation & Advise from Rwenzori Expeditions

Halima the Reservations ( Travel Consultant) from Rwenzori expeditions recommends that the visit to Cheptegei peak is also challenging and not the simplest, so you will still be seeing the glacier and expect to equip your self with the hiking equipment.

Rwenzori Expeditions team reassures its clients that if there is any change and development for reopening Margherita peak , we shall keep you posted.
