6 Days Climbing Weismann peak in Rwenzori Mountains : Trek Rwenzori
Weismann Peak – Weismann Peak is a sub-5,000m trekking peak accessible via the Kilembe Trail. We offer it as a moderate trek in contrast to the demanding peaks of Mt Stanley and Baker.
There is no glacier on Weismann and no need for ropes or technical equipment, except in very poor conditions. On a clear day, the view from the top of Weismann to the Kachope Lakes below and to Mts Stanley and Baker in the distance is marvellous.
The route to Weismann Peak from Kilembe and back takes 6 days. See our Weismann Peak climb itinerary. Weismann Peak can be climbed en route to Margherita/Baker – allow an extra day.
Though more approachable than Margherita Peak and Mt Baker, the challenging nature of the Rwenzoris and the high levels of rainfalls mean that many will still find Weismann to be a very demanding trek, both during summit night and during the walk-in.
