The mountain reached a height of 3,711 meters (12,175 ft) after its last eruption in 1957. Bisoke has the largest crater lake of the range.Bisoke Mt Bisoke stands at 3711m, it has the typical conic shape of a “perfect” volcano and in its crater lies a deep crater lake. The high elevation demands extra strength of climbers and the whole excursion can take between 5 hours and the whole day depending on the speed of the walk and the frequency of stops. The ascent typically takes around 3 hours. During the climb, you will cross a series of different vegetation habitats starting with bamboo forests, then moving into Hagenia – Hypericum forest and finally moving through Senecio – Lobelia bush near the summit. The trek starts at 07:00am from the Park’s headquarters in Kinigi from where you will be driven to the starting point of the trek. Porters can also be hired from the park headquarter at 10$ back to Kigali at around 5pm
