## Access From Musanze (formerly Ruhengeri), take the road to the Ugandan border (25 km).
In the village of Kidaho, turn left and go up the track (good surface) to a hamlet with a large market in its centre.
Continue the track (bad) for 1 km: at a crow's feet, turn left, then again left 150 m further on.
Go up to the end of the track, the path starts in the axis of the track. ## Upward From the "parking", go up a path on the foothills of the volcano, then turn right so as to leave a wooded ravine on the left hand side.
The trail then gets lost a little in the fields: look for a green sign at the park boundary (very clear) indicating the trail. From there, the ascent is in two parts: - The first one is very steep and in the forest, rather painful. - The second one in a steppe vegetation, the path lies down a little.
The ascent is made in a slope that narrows to end on a croup.
A directional sign marks the junction with the Ugandan trail: the summit is then 5 minutes away. ## Return By the same route. <br/><br/>_This Adventure has been shared under the [Creative Commons Share Alike](https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.5/) licence._
