Climbing and hiking Muhavura mountain in south western Uganda is an adventurous and a worthwhile visit walking through the beautiful terrains which are varied and often like a desert. the open slopes are covered with thick shrubs and thickets which are broad and twisted plants which look like Yucca. The trails that you walk through as you get to see all the 3-peaks normally turn foggy in the mountains.

The walk is through muddy and slippery grounds as it rains on and off. And as you get to the summit, you find small crater ponds but on the summit which are pristine and completely hiding in a slight hollow like shape. Accommodation again at the Kisoro Tourist Hotel .
