Mount Luigi is the lowest of the six mountains of the Ruwenzori Range, and is located further south than the other five. This massif forms a horse-shoe ridge around an impressive glacial cirque, the finest in the Ruwenzori. From Mutsori, Congo, local tribesman are available as guides or porters. There are several huts maintained throughout the Ruwenzori. Like all of the Ruwenzori massifs, Luigi's summit consists of multiple jagged peaks, the highest of which are Sella (15,178 ft./4,626 m.), Weismann (15,157 ft./4,620 m.), and Okusoma (15,020 ft./4,578 m.).
