Walumbe pits are recesses in the rock, 1.5 meters wide and up to 70 meters long), going vertically downwards into the ground. There are 240 pits that bring questions of who could have spared the time to dig all these pits. Animals seem to keep away from this place, and the people who dared to go down into the depths of the pits, said that they were overcome with inexplicable horror.

We will have a lunch near crater Crater Lake Nkuruba, enjoy the beauty of the Lake and cultural dancing of local people.

There are roughly 700 mountain gorillas remaining on Earth, and nearly half live in the forests of the Virunga mountains in central Africa. Gorilla trekking is unpredictable. It's difficult to foresee how many hours you will hike. The gorilla excursion can take from 2 up to 8 hours. Expect to walk along distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. For conservation purposes, time spent with the gorillas is limited to one hour. A ranger will brief you on how to behave with the gorillas.
