Rwenzori Mountains and the National Park on the border between Uganda and the Congo Democratic Republic on a map presenting the area at three scales, plus extensive text providing information on various aspects of the region including walking and climbing routes.

On one side are three maps: central Rwenzori is covered at 1:50,000 with contour lines at 100m intervals and a more detailed map at 1:20,000 presents the area around the main peaks with contour interval of 50m. Both maps indicate recent and present day glaciated areas, major cliffs, marshland and different types of vegetation. The maps show established paths and possible routes, huts and rock shelters, etc.

The third map at 1:400,000 presents the area around the two national parks, with coverage extending to the Kasese and Fort Portal on the Ugandan side and Semliki River in Congo. The map shows towns and villages, the road network, airfields, etc. A small inset places the whole region in a wider context within the two countries

The reverse side is covered by text, illustrated with colour photos, on various aspects of the area including its history, fauna and flora, climate, illness and accidents, cooking and mountain food, equipment, etc. Notes provide information and routes descriptions for approaches from Congo (one 4-day circuit) or from Uganda (several walking circuits and routes, plus five climbing routes). Also provided is a list of useful contact details.
