MOUNTAIN MOROTO

This is the highest Mountain in Moroto District and sits at the border of Uganda and Kenya. It stands at an elevation of 3,083 meters above sea level and is one of the chain volcanoes of Mountain Elgon. It is one of the few mountains in Uganda that you can hike in a total of three hours.

Why not give it a shot during your visit to Moroto? For starters, its gradient is gentle, this pauses a less straining hiking challenge. Secondly, its weather is not punishingly cold. This will lessen your vulnerability to altitude sickness. As you beat its hiking challenge, you will encounter several monkeys and wild cats. The nature reserve boasts of over 220 recorded bird species.

The best part of the story is that hiking is free. All you have to do is seek permission from the surrounding community before attempting to hike it. The bad news is that the Mountain is not safe for tourism at the moment. The locals are hostile following NFA’s alleged sale off of the forest zone of their mountain to some timber dealing investor.
