It is a very scenic area, set along the Nteko Ridge, which provides grandstand views across the Kashasha River Valley into Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and the forest which cloaks the valley’s northern slopes. Nkuringo means ‘round stone’ and refers to knoll-like forested hill that’s set beside the river, but is dwarfed by loftier ridges above it. To the south and west superb panoramas include the entire length of the Virunga volcanic range. The International Gorilla Conservation Programme has purchased 10km-long by 400m-wide strip of public land along the river as a buffer zone for the growth of crops that are not appealing to Gorillas.
