After this you will visit the local gorilla orphanage.
Dinner and overnight stay at Mikeno lodge.
Breakfast at 7:00am
Proceed to the nearby starting point for hiking mount Nyiragongo.
You will be briefed shortly and begin your adventurous experience of hiking to the summit of this active volcano. It takes roughly 5 hours to hike to the summit of the volcano and you will enjoy the spectacular views of Virunga national park and the adjacent communities.
It’s a magical experience having this life time opportunity standing right at the edge of the gigantic crater staring at the red-hot bubbling lava lake roughly hundred feet beneath you.
The bubbling lava lake is clearly seen at night as the sky glows red from the lava, which makes it even more beautiful.
You will spend the night in the summit shelters.
Breakfast at 8:00am. Begin your decent back to the starting point.
You surely are worn out and just need to relax and refresh!
Dinner and overnight stay Mikeno lodge.
Exit Virunga national park and journey back to place of origin. This marks the end of the trip.
