Best Time to Take a Rwenzori Trekking Tour

One of the basic reasons but important why Rwenzori Mountain trekking is so popular is that Rwenzori can be climbed all year round by small and large groups on private tours. Its location, close to the equator, means that you won’t find the typical four seasons that you may be used to at home. There are only two seasons here: rainy and dry season. While trekking is possible throughout the year, the rainy seasons, from March to May and again from November to December, are not the ideal times to conquer this mountain. Paths to the summit can be slippery so any trekkers should be well prepared with the proper equipment.

Car Rental Congo offers a range of routes to suit every trekker’s experience and fitness levels, getting you to the summit with the best team possible. While the climb will be difficult, it’s only when you’re sitting at the summit with the sprawling savanna far below that you realize the simple truth: it was all worth it.
