Location: Bordering Rwenzori Mountains National Park
The tiny village of Mihunga faces the craggy, snow-capped peaks of Rwenzori Mountains, known as the Mountains of the Moon. The Bakonzo tribe have lived here for over 300 years with no electricity or running water, and have adapted their way of life to the climate and steep green hillsides of the Rwenzori foothills.
Turaco View is the Mihunga community tourism group, named after one of the region´s most beautiful endemic birds: the Rwenzori Turaco. Hikers on this trail, which weaves through the forests of the Rwenzori foothills, may be lucky enough to spot one of these brightly coloured birds in the forest canopy, and Turaco View´s expert guides will be able to point out other species such as bee-eaters, sunbirds and even playful black and white colobus monkeys.
