« on: Oct 23 2007, 01:25 »

Has anyone been to this area before? Am looking at possible trip here in December with a friend. Any info on Climbing possibilities, companies that could arrange logistics etc.

Looking to climb a few of the summits in the area

It is 200% recommended, maybe the best trip I ever did :)

It is still quite undeveloped though, so you need to go with an expensive operator or organise a lot yourself. First get in contact with the Uganda Wildlife Authority about current permits etc:
http://www.uwa.or.ug/
And ask them about current companies that are advised.

There are many possibilities for local companies getting you to the area, there you can hire porters etc on the spot.

These pictures I took there in 2005:










(a few more can be found on the Africa page on ExposedPlanet.com).

Enjoy! 8)
