Rwanda is known as the land of a thousand hills and the magnificent landscapes of Rwanda because of its beautiful views. Mountaineering within Rwanda is best done in Volcanoes National Park, where the mountains that are so easily and wonderfully destined are located. Where you can go for hiking safaris takes place on Mount Karisimbi and then on Mount Bisoke, which are located in the Volcanoes National Park.

Volcanoes National Park is one of the four protected areas that are located in Rwanda. It is found in the northern section of the country and it is very interesting. It was officially opened in 1999 after securing the wonderful area around the park to be reserved for wildlife protection. 

The Volcanoes National Park features five Virunga Volcanoes National Park, and these mountains are good for hiking or climbing safaris. The five volcanoes of Volcanoes Mountain include the Karisimbi, Mikeno, Karisimbi, and Muhavura Mountains, which are shared by Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The hiking safaris are done along the slopes of the mountains of Karisimbi and Bisoke, which are inhabited by the endemic mountain gorillas. If you decide to hike the Bisoke Mountains, then you can rest assured of seeing some of the primates.

A lava spring with pouring lava moving through the Volcanoes National Park of volcanoes is a daring, monotonous, and enjoyable experience for Karisimbi explorers. Mountaineering in the Volcanoes national park commences with a brief introduction from Kinigi, the park’s central command.

Before the climbing begins, hikers and explorers must present their climbing licenses as well as valid trip documents. Following the brief instructions, the explorers proceed to the first step of mountaineering around the two mountains in the public park of volcanoes.

Mountain Bisoke is a functional lava well that stretches to Congo in the Virunga national park and Rwanda in the Volcanoes national park. From the summit, you will be able to see both Rwanda and Uganda.

For first-time hikers, it is recommended that you climb Bisoke rather than Karisimbi. You will just need to hike to the summit of Mount Bisoke. It takes about six hours to get to the peak and then back, which means that it is easier to trek.

The finest climbing season in Rwanda is during the dry season because this is the time when the mountains like Karisimbi have steep slants and illusive trails. In any case, during the blustery season, hiking in Rwanda is possible all year round.

Prior to assuming the summits of the volcanoes in the public park, climbers must plan and carry acceptable and fitted climbing gear. To name a few, there are hand-woolen gloves, comfortable and light climbing boats, a trekking bed, and a camp tent. So make sure that you come and enjoy the wonderful safaris.
