four days trek around the waterfalls circuit-rwenzori mountains


Day one

Start from Trekkers at 1,450 meters and spend the night in Sine Hut at 2,596 meters for a 1,146-meter elevation gain. The Afro-Montane Forest Zone's large forest trees line our path as we ascend the valley floor to begin. There are several birds along this slow ascent, and there's a chance to spot blue monkeys darting through the jungle. Visitors may occasionally catch a glimpse of groups of 15 to 20 black and white Colobus monkeys swinging through the trees. Rare sightings of the L'Hoest monkey, which is protected by the King of Omusinga and is one of the cultural symbols of the Bukonzo, are possible. You may also see wild chimpanzees in the area. 


From forest trees to bamboo thickets, low shrubs, flowers, mushrooms, and numerous moss and lichen-covered vines dangling from the tall trees, the area is home to a broad range of plant species. Only 200 meters from Sine Hut, Enock's Falls presents a wonderful opportunity to create a wonderful screensaver for your memories.


The wooden cottages at Sine Camp, 2,596 meters above sea level, are positioned between large forest trees on a ridge, where you may sit and take in the grandeur of the Afro-Montane forest as you gaze down at a magnificent waterfall thundering over rocks far below. The warmth of the campfire and the opportunity to talk with the guides about the mountains and local customs appeal to certain customers. Sine is located close below the bamboo zone, and the neighborhood is home to a wide variety of bird species. Enock Falls, which is surrounded by vibrant green flora and hanging vines, is located 150 meters from the camp. genuinely lovely. Sleep at Sine or, if you're up for it, head up to Kalama Camp at 3,134 meters.


Day two 

will then go to Samalaira Camp at 3,170 meters by crossing over the top of the ridge among stunning Giant Heather trees. You will pass two small, incredibly gorgeous streams on the way. When you get to Samalira Camp, you can take a break and decide whether to go on to the bottom of Samalira Falls, which plunge down a steep valley flanked by Giand Heather trees to create an amazing scene. You can access a reliable Airtel network 100 meters from the tent and might want to sit down and catch up on a few emails and messages.


Day three

A succession of rapids leads quickly to Ajarova Falls and Plozza Falls. John gave the third set of falls the names of his mother Kathleen Plozza and his great-great-grandfather Antonio Plozza (1850–1923), who loved to hike and explore the mountains. Antonio Plozza lived in the lower Poschavio valley, close to Tirano, on the Swiss–Italian border. There is a covered platform with a view of Plozza Falls where you can take in the scenery and have a quick snack before continuing. More waterfalls may be found below Plozza Falls, the last of which is Bridal Falls, where the water cascades over a big flat rock to resemble a bride's veil.


The bamboo zone, which is halfway down these falls, begins to develop a magnificent ambiance as a result of the mist from the falls nourishing the bamboo that is covered in moss, as well as the evergreen grasses and herbs that the Rwenzori duiker eat. Along this stretch, duiker are frequently spotted, and the Rwenzori Mountains are also the only place where one may find the rather dark-colored Rwenzori leopard.


The forest along this stretch is spectacular and teeming with animals like hyraxes, duikers, and primates. When you arrive at Forest View Camp, where we spend the night, you are 2,580 meters above sea level.


Day four 

The trekking trails have some fantastic views of the valley below, the trail from Forest View Camp descends through towering forest trees and through hills. You will stop at the 1,973-meter Nyamwamba Camp at the bottom of the steeper stretch for refreshments and a snack before descending a gentle slope to the park offices and returning to Kilembe.
