According to the Busoga Tourism Initiative, Kagulu Rock is a spiritual marvel. It’s so because it’s believed to be the first settlement zone for Basoga people that wandered from Bunyoro led by the Prince Mukama. He settled here and made it his Kingdom headquarter because of its high elevation that permitted him to have great views of the adjoining areas. The hill is positioned between two roads at the foothill leading to Iyingo and Gwaya areas. The hill has been adapted for tourism with several rock hiking opportunities. One part has many steps up to the top for climbers to use. When you reach the hill summit, there is an outstanding 360 view across a stretch of green vegetation up to Lake Kyoga.
