The other prominent feature is the Mount Karisimbi and Bisoke volcanoes a place to be for hikers and mountain climbers. The hike to the top of the mountain is challenging but exciting and its one of the most done hikes in Rwanda. The hikes are more convenient for Gorilla tracking either after the trek or before the trek. The activity starts early in the morning with a briefing from the mountain management guides who later give you porters to assist you in case the hikes become tough. You need just 1-2 days in order to explore both mount Karisimbi and Bisoke. The hikes last for either 5-6 hours both ascending and descending.
