The Directions

To find this viewpoint, you’ll need to ascend the forested hill that runs to the east of town. If you walk down the main road toward the lake, right near to where the shops run out you should see a small rocky path running up the mountain to your left. The path should be busy with locals coming and going from the village up the hill.
 
When you reach the first fork you should take the left through the broken wire fence and up into the village. You should have good views of the town below and glimpses of Nyiragongo Volcano on a clear day. How far you walk up and through the village is up to you. We went as far as a local cemetery and then turned back.

Top Tips

Expect to be stared at quite a lot. It would seem that the locals don’t get ‘muzungus’ wandering up this way often.
Don’t expect fantastic views, but this viewpoint does make for a quick bird’s eye view of the town.
