Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is home to three of the Virunga volcanoes that have these great hiking trails.
Mt. Sabyinyo Volcano is locally known as “An Old man’s Tooth” because of its genetic look and formation. It is a hike taken by those who are physically fit and quite adventurous.
It is a 1-day hike with its 3rd peak being the border of Uganda, Rwanda, and DR Congo and all the other 2 peaks border Uganda and Rwanda. Offers Lots of beautiful Sceneries and great landscapes.
Mt. Muhabura is the most challenging peak in the park. The local dialect is known as ‘Muhabura’ which means ‘the guide’.
