Mount Napak (2,538m) is the third highest mountain of Karamoja. Due it’s unique location within the Pian Upe Wildlife Reserve, you’re up for breathtaking panoramic views of the Karamoja planes and distance mountain ranges. But it’s also the toughest mountain to climb due to it’s steep cliffs and wild vegetation.
The steepness of the mountain makes it unfavourable for people to live on. Therefore the Karamojong and Iteso people live at the foot of the mountain. The mountain provides them food by hunting for small wild animals and having their gardens at the fertile foothills.
