Uganda Tourism Board, UNDP & UWA
On 3 August 2022, His Majesty Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru Rukidi IV, King of Tooro Kingdom summited Margherita Peak to advocate for climate action and conservation of the biodiverse Rwenzori Mountains ecosystem. If melting of the Margherita Glacier persists at its present rate, the glacier is expected to disappear by the year 2040.
"And this is how a giant has let me make real the dream of my life. Letting me reach his life source, to show all our people where upon our lives depend. A treasure that we must all protect. Before its lost forever."
