Mountain Hiking in Congo.
The most well-known walks are on the Nyiragongo and Mikeno volcanoes, which are located in the Virunga national park. The park offers some of the best climbing opportunities and stunning scenery, but it is most well-known for its gorilla trekking safaris.
The most popular peak to climb in Congo is by far Nyiragongo, an active volcano. The one-night walk to the top, where you can see the red-hot crater with boiling lava and magma, also contributes to its success. The first day is spent climbing to the peak with your cook, porters, and ranger guides. When you get there, you set up camp for the night and go on to see the crater in the dark, which gives you an incredible view. After taking in the vista, you make your way to your tent to spend the night. Because to the loose lava rocks, slippery stones, and steep nature of the volcano, which is accompanied by coolness due to the high altitude, a portion of the hike on Nyiragongo is difficult.
Although Mikeno is a dormant volcano, like Nyiragongo, it is also found in Virunga National Park. Before you go on this journey, you must acquire a hiking permit from the park. Once the time has been determined, rangers and porters will be assigned to walk with you on your journey. The park pays the rangers, but you’ll have to tip the porters separately. They will assist you with cooking while on the mountain and lugging part of your gear.
Mountain Kahuzi and Mountain Biege are located in the Kahuzi-biege National Park, and both include hiking paths. The ascent and descent of Mt. Kahuzi are both day hikes that take about 4 and 3 hours, respectively, depending on experience. Enjoy the many vegetation kinds, and if the weather is favorable, you might observe some primates while hiking. Mt. Biege is a shorter trek than Mt. Kahuzi, but it still provides excellent experiences and views of the Congo.
