8 Days trip to the mountain of the moon - Day5: Mount Stanley

Day5: Mount Stanley
Leaving Bujuku, through more bog, the trail climbs the steep slops west of the lake, passing through the magical Groundsels Gully as it ascends to Scott-Elliot Pass at 4372m. At the head of the gully a metal ladder takes you over a steep section after which the trail splits into two. The right leads up to Elena Hut and Mount Stanley on a steep trail over large boulders. The left path leads to Scott. Elliot passes and down to Kitandara Lakes. For those sleeping at the basic Elena Hut prepared for a cold and icy night (FB).
