8 Days trip to the mountain of the moon - Day4: Enter the Lower Bigo Bog

Day4: Enter the Lower Bigo Bog
Immediately after John Matte Hut, the trail drops to cross the Bujuku River and enters Lower Bigo Bog, home of giant lobelias. Jumping from tussock to tussock, the bog is finally crossed but rarely without the feet sampling some of the freezing ooze below. The upper Bigo Bog gives way to Bujuku Lake, with views of Mt Baker to the South and Mt Stanley to the west. Bujuku Hut, well located in the shadow of Mount Baker and Mount Speke, is set in a narrow valley below Steinmann pass. A spectacularly setting but it can be very cold, even for the Rwenzoris. (FB).
