Much as gorilla trekking and golden monkey trekking are a focus for most travelers to Volcanoes national park, a hike to the graveyard of Dian Fossey, an American primatologists who sacrificed her life to save the mountain gorillas is worth doing. The Dian Fossey grave yard hike is a learning experience for travelers providing them with the in-depth understanding of start of gorilla tourism in Rwanda and how an America primatologist sacrificed her life to save the rare mountain gorillas that where at the verge of extinction by then.
For many people, gorilla trekking is the driving force of coming to Rwanda, however, there is a lot to do more than that and you can see a lot in this country than just the famous mountain gorillas. The expenditure of the permits to track the gorillas definitely discourages many from visiting Rwanda, so in many cases, it’s more expensive than the cost of the flight. So, its also important to enjoy an equal fantastic experience for a fraction of the cost and come and track the chimpanzees instead.
Getting to the canopy is also about 2 hours from the starting point at Uwinka visitor Centre. The forest is on a mountain and the hike is also slippery due to the mere fact that the ground on which the guests trek is wet and so moist. Viewing the canopy on arrival, most especially for those that are fear heights, this could also be described as the endless walk to hell.
