Fort Portal

Many travelers stay overnight in this small, quiet and pleasant town in the northern end of the Rwenzori Mountains, en route to Murchison Falls national Park. Others use it as the base from which to explore Semliki Valley and the Kibale Forest Primate Reserve. Though not as convenient as Kasese, it is also possible to organize a trek in the mountains from here. Other attractions include, the hot springs in Semuliki Valley and pygmy villages
