Rock climbing at its best

Rock climbing provided exercise and remove the fear of thinking that the rock was not secure at all.

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 :)

The Tororo Rock is a very beautiful sedimentary rock outcrop which is the most outstanding feature in Tororo town. In fact the town derives its name from the rock. The dominant padhola community would say "I am going to Tor Oro" meaning a place of fog year long. Fog is found around the rock. There are guides that can take... More

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... More

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.
