Description

Mt. Rwenzori (5109 m) is the third highest mountain in Africa, the summit is at the border line between Uganda and the DR Congo. The highest Rwenzoris are permanently snow-capped, and they, along with Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya are the only such in Africa. The Ruwenzoris are often identified with the 'Mountains of the Moon' mentioned by Ptolemy.In front of the mountain there is a 'Giant Groundsel' (Dendrosenecio). This plant is endemic to the higher altitude zones of mountain-areas in Central and East Africa. At Mt. Rwenzori they are getting as high as 12 meter.See more of my photos of mountains in Africa:
