Day 6 at Rwenzori: Journey back to base camp

Don’t let anyone lie to you that going down a mountain is fun. Ever. It is a torturous venture. Worse than the hike up. You do it begrudgingly because you have no choice but to go home anyways. Imagine you are already tired from the days of climbing up. You are tired to your rope’sContinue reading “Day 6 at Rwenzori: Journey back to base camp”

Day 1 at Rwenzori: Base camp to Nyabithaba

By Laker Winfred L Have a theme song or songs. Your favorite songs or something. Let it be a song that drives you. The kind you like when running or working out. That number that sends you into a raucous mood. Your ultimate pump song. Have it on hand and get a few of theContinue reading “Day 1 at Rwenzori: Base camp to Nyabithaba”

Day 2 at Rwenzori: From Nyabitaba to Bigo camp

We left Nyabithaba hut, which is approximately 2,651m ASL at about 8am for Bigo camp after our breakfast of millet porridge, tea, bread and other meals I don’t remember. There are things you will need to know. Once you are done with your meals and ready to hit the road, the porters will pack upContinue reading “Day 2 at Rwenzori: From Nyabitaba to Bigo camp”

My journey to Rwenzori: The preparation!

You see those models strutting their stuff on the fashion week runway in Milan? Yes? Those runway gods did not get to where they are by doing nothing. They did practice. They learned. They sweated. They struggled. There were tears. They worked hard at it. There was pain. There was rage. They became who theyContinue reading “My journey to Rwenzori: The preparation!”

My journey to Rwenzori: Decisions, decisions

When the chaps up the mountain finally returned to base camp in Kasese I was anxious to hear their stories. They started off with the not so good parts of the hike. The hard and challenging parts. The initial pictures posted on the WhatsApp group sowed seeds of doubt in my mind. I didn’t likeContinue reading “My journey to Rwenzori: Decisions, decisions”

My journey to Rwenzori: How it all started.

These past weeks, I have been in a floating state of sorts. In a daze. I had no balance whatsoever. No feeling. Nothing. I was like a cloud not sure of where to let loose its drops, because, even I cannot believe I actually hiked to the highest point in Uganda! Margherita peak! 16,763 ft.Continue reading “My journey to Rwenzori: How it all started.”

Day 5 at Rwenzori: Summit to Margherita peak!

By Laker Winfred L Our climb to the Promised land was an estimate of  3.8km and could have taken anything from 6 hours onwards. The distance from Irene Lakes to the peak, you should know, is shorter with less rope manenos compared the Camp Elena route. So we were in luck! Our ETA at theContinue reading “Day 5 at Rwenzori: Summit to Margherita peak!”

Day 4 at Rwenzori: Irene Lakes campsite

By Laker Winfred L Day 4 of our stay in the mountains fell on the first day of March 2021. A slightly sunny day. We left camp Omuihembe at about 10:40am for Irene Lakes campsite. I was happy the guides had settled on taking us to Irene Lakes instead of Camp Elena. The stories IContinue reading “Day 4 at Rwenzori: Irene Lakes campsite”

Day 3 at Rwenzori: Bigo to Omuihembe camp

Your third attempt at something is bound to be way better than when you started off. 3 is a number of good fortune of sorts; and so was my third day at Rwenzori. But before I tell you about the greatness of day 3, let me rant about day 2 night manenos; which were aplenty.Continue reading “Day 3 at Rwenzori: Bigo to Omuihembe camp”
