Mount Emin is one of the six mountains of the Ruwenzori range. Like Mount Gessi, it is located north of the triangle formed by Mounts Stanley, Speke, and Baker. Emin and Gessi lie on either side of a long narrow valley running north-south. Emin's twin summits are Umberto (15,740 ft.) and Kraepelin (15,720 ft.). The mountain rises to a rocky north-south ridge with the higher peak at the southern end. All ridges on this mountain are very narrow and rocky. From Mutsori, Zaire, local tribesman are available as guides or porters. There are several huts maintained throughout the Ruwenzori.
