Mountain Gahinga lies between Sabinyo and Muhavura and rises up to 3,474 meters. Mount Gahinga has a swampy caldera on its peak believed to be as wide as 180 meters. The vegetation across the mountain can be described as afro-montane with bamboo composing the main vegetation. Like Muhabura and Sabyinyo, the bamboo forests on Mount Gahinga are a habitat for the endangered mountain gorillas that live within the park. There are several other species of animals and birds that form part of the Mount Gahinga ecosystem. The golden monkeys are notable for these.
