The Trail begins on the shores of Lake Kivu along the western edge of Rwanda across from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and extends south for 227 kms from Rubavu to Rusizi via the Karongi and Nyamasheke Districts. The trail offers stunning scenery, coffee and tea experiences, and visits to towns and villages along the Lake.

The Trail can be walked in 10 days or completed by bicycle in five days and by 4×4 car in three days. Along the way, the Thousand Hills Trail includes eight base camps, two main paths and four secondary trails, which all make this a breathtaking “bucket list” once-in-a-lifetime hiking experience.
