Here you go, Rambo: Set the scene of your own action flick as you dive into the wilderness amid a retinue of soldiers. You’ll embark on this guided expedition in the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains—which form the border between Uganda and the Congo—to summit 16,762-foot Margherita Peak. One of Africa’s least-visited spots (and its third-tallest mountain), Margherita requires a 38-mile ascent assisted by crampons, an ice axe, soldiers, rangers, and porters. You’ll trek through dense jungle and bogland, past stands of outsized, hairy lobelia, and across three glaciers (pit-stopping in huts). After a traverse across the snowy moonscape, a 2,000-foot, class 4 scramble lands you on a private perch atop Margherita for 360-degree views of neighboring 15,000-foot peaks, glistening ice fields, and verdant rainforests.
