On the gorilla trek, we hiked up Mount Karisimbi, at first from about 2400 meters elevation rather rapidly, and then through a circuitous path (much more difficult to do) in the rainforest to about 3100 meters. Finding the gorillas was other-wordly, quiet except for birds chirping and very natural-seeming gorilla behavior (see the videos on this site or on YouTube--search for "JKdrumdoc" videos if looking for them on YouTube).
