Moco Moco Hike & Schomburgk’s Peak
Starting from the namesake village at the base, the Moco Moco trek begins with a natural trail interspersed with concrete steps. With hundreds of shades of green to keep you company, the 1000 feet walk up to the first major viewpoint can be done in a few hours. Parts of the hike are steep but it is largely manageable by those who are reasonably fit. At the top, there is a man-made tank propped on the plateau to cool off in; short walking trails also lead to different lookout points. The view of the vast savannahs and Kanuku Mountains is a soothing after the trek.
Hours: Dawn to dusk; Entry Fee: Free
A large rocky formation with 12 viewpoints, Schomburgk’s Peak stands over Kumu village. Though this is a short distance from the base, the three kilometre climb up is steeper that others and covers a landscape of 3,000 feet. All the hard work pays off when you get to the top; the view of the savannah are exemplary from here. Reserve a whole day for this hike.
