Mgahinga National Parks

This protects the Ugandan portion of the Virunga; an imposing string of nine free standing extinct and active volcanoes that run along the border with Rwanda and DR Congo. Mountain Gorillas are the major attractions in this park.

It covers only 38 square kilometers, gazetted in 1991 adjoining Rwanda and DR Congo with an elevation of up to 3474m above sea level. Mgahinga National Park offers three extinct volcanoes for physically fit hikers: Mt. Sabinyo 3669m, Mt. Gahinga 3474m and Muhavura 4127m.
