Karisimbi Mountain Climbing

Karisimbi Volcano is the highest of the eight Virunga Volcanoes and the highest point in Rwanda at 4,507m. It was first summited in 1903 and holds the sixth position in terms of height on the continent of Africa after Kilimanjaro of Kenya; Mt. Kenya of Kenya, Mt Rwenzori of Uganda, Mt. Meru of Tanzania and Ras Dashen in Ethiopia. Summiting Mount Karisimbi is a two day active adventure that takes you through the grave yards of Dian Fossey though booking them extra cost. You traverse the various vegetation zones including Bamboo and wild celery that cover the lower slopes perfect for Mountain gorillas, continue through the hagenica forest before approaching splendid giant lobelia and groundsel. The first camp is pitched at 3,700m with clear views of Mount Bisoke and the second day takes you through a strenuous climb to the summit and then a descend back to the ground which takes about 6 hours.
Hiking Bisoke Volcano:
Mount Bisoke is 3,711m and offers a one day mountain climbing adventure in Volcanoes National Park. The Mount Bisoke climb commences at 7am and takes 7 hours round trip. The hike takes you through impressive flora and amazing scenic views including the views of Lake Ngezi. Climbing Bisoke is not so strenuous and can be ideal for first time climbers.
