The best view comes after the hardest climb. When they make it to the summit, Mount Kabuye hikers are rewarded with the views of the volcanoes, the twin lakes and the grandeur of hills embellishing the surface of the area.
During sunset, the sky glows. Watching the sun fading on the other side of the Virunga Massif is a spectacle you would want to see one day. When darkness envelopes the sky around the mountain and the landscapes beneath it, illuminating lights from the surrounding settlements look like little diamonds sprinkled on a dark surface.
As guests bond around the campfire, appetizers are served. Then the main course is placed on the dinner table. Adequate drinking water and organic juice, not to mention aromatic and alcoholic beverages are also available.
Strolling around the crest in the morning is highly recommended. From your vantage point, you will see a network of trails meandering around the aforementioned rolling hills. On the other side of the loop, the view of the volcanoes and the twin lakes will take your breath away.
