Do you want to have a view of the Abuja City Masterplan? Then you should try to climb the Aso Rock Monolith.

The rock, which the Nigerian presidential palace was named after sits right behind the Three Arms one (which hosts the National Assembly, Presidential Palace and the nation’s judiciary). 

This Rock holds a significant importance in the culture and history of the people of Gbagyi. There are a couple of local priests that look after the rock and it’s often said that to climb or enter any of the caves, you would need to take permission from the priests.

Whilst the rock is rumored to be unconquered, some people have claimed to have climbed to it’s summit. This will however be very difficult now because of the sensitive location of the rock. However, tourists are allowed to visit the site.

If you want to visit the rock solo, please contact the Abuja Federal Capital Territory Authorities to get permission to visit.

Fun Fact: “Aso” means victory, and it is significant to the  people of Asokoro (‘people of Victory.’) So the Asokoro area of Abuja is named after the same rock.

Impressive monument right?
