Nyero Rock Art

The Nyero Rockpaintings site is a three tiered rockshelters with primitive paintings on their inner surfaces. Archaeologically the site is of a Later Iron Age period. The makers of the paintings cannot be traced but the ingenuity in which they were painted demonstrates a high degree of appreciation of their aesthetic values.

Nyero rock paintings are 8km west of Kumi town on the Ngora road in Eastern Uganda. Some of the paintings represent animals, concentric circles and canoes. As a perfect combination with a visit to Sipi Falls, Kidepo Valley National Park, Mountain Hiking in Karamoja and Karamojong Cultural tours in Moroto.
