A hike to Karisimbi’s summit is not an ordinary one, but also affords sights of several bird varieties, primates like monkeys and Gorillas since the volcano lies in the primates. The hike up the summit is characterized by muddy trails especially during the rainy season, though due to the altitude, it can rain at any time of the day. Sleeping bags and tents, a chef and porters are hired.
