Rwenzori Mountains National Park was designated a World Heritage Site in 1994 because of its splendid natural beauty. The park is situated in the south-western Uganda on the eastern side of the western (Albertine) African rift valley. The park has five distinct vegetation zones, about 89 bird species, 15 butterfly species and 4 primate species. Glaciers, snowfields, waterfalls and lakes are some of the other attractions found in the park.
The park is the beginning of hikes and trails through the Rwenzori ranges. The park is the location of Margherita – Africa’s third highest peak with a height of 5,109 metres. Most of the centre and eastern half of the Rwenzori mountains is found in the park. Also, Mount Stanley and Mount Barker, Africa’s fourth and fifth highest peaks respectively, are found in the park. There are distinct trekking and climbing routes found within the park. Great camping facilities, huts and a good trail network make the park one of the best mountain climbing destinations.
