8 Days trip to the mountain of the moon - Day 3: The trail from

Day 3: The trail from
Nyabitaba drops down through the forest to the Kurt Shafer Bridge, just below the confluence of the bujuku and Mubuku Rivers. A steep ascent through bamboo forest, traversing a long and exhausting stretch of slipper moss-covered rock. From Nyamileju rock shelter, on clear days, Mount Stanley and mount Speke can be glimpsed before passing into the zone of the giant heather, lobelia and groundsel. The final stretch to the hut is across a tiring bog, the first of many for which the mountain is infamous (FB).
