« Back to All Trips

Located near Castle Forest on the slopes of Mount Kenya is this serene trail that starts of in a very organised and clear manner. The trail follows the electric fence of Castle forest for about 6 km before we turn towards the thunderous waterfall


The descent to the waterfall is short but slippery and once at the bottom we’re greeted by the waterfall falling down several meters before the water spreads around a small rocky island


To get to the island and across the river, we will have to cross on foot in the cool and refreshing waters. Once here, you can even take a swim under the waterfall or just nearby in the waters that collect below the falls


After finishing with the waterfall, we continue on across vast tea farms bordering the forest and finish the hike near where we started


Total hiking distance is approximately 12km and this can be considered a beginner moderate hike
