Mount Muhabura

I’ll post a longer blog about scaling Uganda’s second highest mountain over the next few days, mostly because it is an amazing experience with very little information about how to go about it.

But for now, and to show just what an amazing experience it was, here are a few pics from Mount Muhabura.

On the final ascent to the summit, ladders were the only way to get up the gradient

Not many places in the world you can go for a swim at 16,000ft, or cross from one country to another. Here is Sam and I in the crater lake at the summit swimming back to Uganda from Rwanda
