First of all, Mount Elgon summit is called Wagagai, found at an elevation of 4321m.a.s.l and is remarkably the only mountain with the largest Caldera in the whole world. This beautiful mountain is also gifted with the amazing weather throughout the year around be it rainy season or dry season.

Common challenges some of the hikers encounter on this mountain are high altitude sickness, headache, coldness as others may result from unpreparedness. But above all, it remains the best mountain to summit up.

The question on what to carry or come along with, sometimes it’s also determined by the natural factors such as rain or dry season, thus we do advise and engage you from the best of our local knowledge to make your experience and dreams come true. The items you would carry are;
