« Back to All Trips

The hike route is on the western side of Kiambu county, near Kamangu area. It starts 4km from the Rift Valley Escarpment and progresses down to the plains below after which we gradually descend to the diatomite mines known as Gicheru. The return journey is the same way back but going up the plains and escarpment – this results in a total hiking distance of 20km.

The hiking route covers farm roads, rocky and dry escarpments and plains as well through thorny dry vegetation areas. Over the course of the hike, spectacular views of the surrounding regions can be seen such as Mt. Suswa, Mt. Longonot and the Standard Gauge Railway line (SGR)
