Mount Muhavura

Mount Muhavura (Mount Muhabura) is an extinct volcano in the Virunga Mountains on the border between Rwanda and Uganda. At 4,127 meters (13,540 ft) Muhabura is the third highest of the eight major mountains of the mountain range, which is a part of the Albertine rift, the western branch of the east African rift. Muhabura is partly in the volcanoes national park, Rwanda and partly in the Mgahinga gorilla national park, Uganda.

Hiking on mount Muhabura is one of the major activities that take place here. The name Muhabura means “the guide” in the local language, Kinyarwanda. It can be seen from many parts of Uganda and Rwanda because of its slope.
