3 Days 2 Nights Mountain Sabyinyo Hiking Rwanda Tour

3 Days 2 Nights Mountain Sabyinyo Hiking Rwanda Tour from the 3 Days 2 Nights Kigali Safaris begins from Kigali and ends in Kigali Rwanda. Mount Sabinyo hiking adventure takes you through Kisoro town and the hiking is done from the Uganda side.

Mount Sabyinyo is also known as Mt. Sabinyo and is the most difficult Volcano to hike in Mgahinga National Park in Uganda. Sabinyo, a name derived from the Kinyarwanda word tooth, means “old man’s tooth” because of the resembles of worn teeth in a gum line.

Mount Sabyinyo is found in Mgahinga National park in Kisoro. The first Sabyinyo peak is at 3423 meters, second at 3537 meters and the last one at 3669 meters. Ugandan Hikers start from Kampala. They could also be picked from the towns of Kisoro orKabale in the Western Region of Uganda.

It is from these towns that the 3 Days 2 Nights Mountain Sabyinyo Hiking Rwanda Tour transfers you to Mgahinga National Park to climb Mount Sabyinyo. Standing at 3645 meters, Mount Sabinyo offers one of the best mountain hiking and climbing experiences in Uganda.

Mount Sabyinyo is shared by three countries Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The mountain lies at the meeting point of the all the three borders.  Once at the peak during Mount Sabinyo Volcano, hikers are rewarded with magnificent views of all the 3 countries – Uganda, Rwanda & Democratic Republic of Congo. 

Due to the extremely rocky and uneven surface of the terrain along the Sabinyo’s slopes, the mountain cannot be hiked in Rwanda or the Democratic Republic of Congo except in Uganda.

The Ugandan side has a safe though challenging trail that includes improvising handmade ladders to assist climbers at very steep sections. Mt. Sabinyo is a one day hike and the round trek is 8 hours, 4 hours to the summit and 4 hours back, however depending on the pace, weather, etc…
