Mountain Rwenzori is the highest mountain in Uganda and 3rd highest mountain in Africa. Its highest peak, Margherita/Stanley, 5109m above sea level is covered with snow throughout the year. Other major peaks include Mt.Speke 4890m and Mount Baker 4844m. You need about 5days to hike up to those peaks on foot. However, a 1 day to 3days tour to this wonderful mountain will give you a memorable hike where you will see numerous bird species, colobus monkey, chimpanzee, forest elephants, leopards(on a lucky day), waterfalls and a unique vegetation.
