With sightlines from pretty much all round. The rock is a majestic backdrop to this town. For those into hiking it shd provide a chance to break a sweat.

It's a very steep climb, so be prepared! Don't go in the middle of the day when the sun is at it's hottest. Make sure you don't get ripped off when allocated a guide - we paid 10,000 UGX which was more than enough - don't pay mzungo price. Amazing views from the top, you can even see Kenya on a clear day.

Beautiful views from the top. Too bad there is a huge telephone tower up there, but still worth the climb. It is steep at places, but a simple path to follow and a reasonable climb for almost anyone. You do not need a guide so unless you want a local to talk to on the way up, save your money on the guide. The path is very easy to follow.

I was woken by a lady with a sharp voice. The comforting sleep from #GreenMeadows in Tororo had to come to an end. it was time for Rock Climbing....i Just got my rubber shoes and off i went with my guide.

I got to the base of the Rock i was given a small tour around where i saw cave. then the climbing started.. I should say it was okay at the beginning since one can not realize they are climbing because you keep moving in circles. then it got intense as the steepness become noticeable. We kept taking breaks because our guide was superfast since he is used to the trek and often uses it as an exercise routine. To my surprise there are climbing aids like ladders; they remind me "snakes and ladders" game we use to play when young. Within a span of 45 mins we were at the top of the rock panting and craving for oxygen and water. When took a break and then checked out the defunct cable car, telecom company microwaves. and then it was time to get down. This wasn't an easy task too but we finally made it and ran off to catch breakfast

We hiked up the 'rock' pretty midday so probably not a great time as it was really really hot so involved a lot of water breaks! Otherwise the hike up wasn't too bad but very rocky and some built in ladders toward the top but very secure. Definitely with the views when you reach the top :)

Tororo Presents one of the greatest fitness activities manifested through profound rock climbing. For the sports lovers, this is an even better opportunity, since the exercise and flexibility you get here is directly equated to staircase climbing. You have got to visit Tororo just to have one of the most memorable and refreshing views from the rock top!

The hike is short but steep! Near the top there are a series of ladders that take you to the summit. It was by far my favorite attraction in Tororo!

A beautiful hike, that doesn't require a lot of experience - anyone can do it and is totally worth it, when you get to the top :)

The hiking at Tororo Rock is very steep with some rocks & ladders- but worth it!! You can see all of Tororo from the top and it is just breathtaking!! It's a short hike (maybe 1-1.5 hrs roundtrip) & very worth it! I would take a guide if it is your first time.
