Mount Karisimbi is a stratovolcano in the Virunga Mountains on the border between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is currently dormant. At 4,507 metres (14,787 ft), Karisimbi is the highest of the eight major mountains of the mountain range, which is a part of Albertine Rift, the western branch of the East African Rift. Karisimbi is flanked by Mikeno to the north, Bisoke to the east and Nyiragongo to the west, on the other side of the Rift Valley. Karisimbi is the 11th highest mountain of Africa.

The name Karisimbi comes from the word ‘amasimbi’ in the local language, Kinyarwanda, which means snow. Snow can mostly be found during the dry season in June, July and August on the top of the volcano.

Between Karisimbi and Bisoke is the Karisoke Research Center, which was founded by Dian Fossey in order to observe the mountain gorillas living in this area.

The crux of your writing whilst sounding reasonable in the beginning, did not sit perfectly with me after some time. Someplace throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in logic and you might do well to fill in all those gaps. If you actually can accomplish that, I will certainly be fascinated.

My spouse and i ended up being so excited that Louis managed to round up his research because of the precious recommendations he got out of your site. It is now and again perplexing to simply continually be freely giving information that other folks could have been trying to sell. And we also take into account we have got the website owner to give thanks to for that. The type of explanations you have made, the simple web site menu, the friendships you aid to instill - it's everything astonishing, and it is letting our son in addition to the family recognize that that content is pleasurable, which is certainly pretty essential.
