The view from Hotel Ruwenzori. 3500 meters are to be climbed.
The plan is simple. 6 days total: 3 climbing, 1 day at the top, 2 days to go down. 3 huts. 8 trekkers, 15 porters, 2 cooks and 2 guards.
Bekah and Jojo, the youngest in the group.
The porters listening to Radio Okapi and picking flowers. We were the only group there.
Falk resting on moss. Every hundred meters of climb provides a new scenery to enjoy.
The second hut marks the end of rivers. At 3500 meters, we are above the evening clouds.

From the left to right, Falk, myself, Sarah, Terese, Bekah, Pam, Jojo and John.
Bird watching in Congo rates high.
I'm surrounded by three park guards and our two cooks.
Five years ago, a fire raged on the Ruwenzori slopes. Sprouts are growing fast though.
The last hut at 4200 meters. These were built by the EU in the early nineties.

Couldn't be more perfect for the Mountains of the Moon, as the Ruwenzoris are called.
There are three lakes at the top.
Take a close look. There's a park guard there!
