Hiking Mount Morungole is an exciting alternative to the more strenuous climbs in East Africa with many of the same attractions, a milder climate, lower elevation and requires no special equipment or technical experience.

Mount Morungole

Mt Morungole features exciting and dramatic landscapes, creating an illusion of rocks that are about to topple onto Kaabong at any time. Passing through the fabled Ik community is a cultural highlight.

The actual summit of Morungole is a place of immense spiritual significance to the Ik and out of bounds to visitors, but you can head to an alternative peak and take in the stunning views of Kidepo Valley National Park.

The mountain is one of the four highest mountain ranges in the Karamoja sub-region with its peak at 2,749m.
