This is a 22.8km hike along a ridge line with 780m of climbing. 6 hour hike.
Info: The route starts at a junction about 40 minutes drive from Byumba. The route follows the dirt road to a small village and then climbs to the top of a ridge, where there is a road. The route goes along the ridge line with great views over northern Rwanda and the famous ‘1000 hills’. You do almost all the hike’s climbing in the first hour or so. The route then descends into the valley and through fields and alongside a winding stream, ending up back at the car. The trail is mostly good quality rural dirt roads, apart from some of the first climb, meaning its easy to walk with others and talk.
