Kenya’s 3rd highest mountain, Ole Satima, stands tall at 4001m and is the highest point in the Aberdares Ranges

The scenic route to the peak is through Dragon’s teeth which are a series of massive rocky outcrops jutting out from the moorland


The hike is 16km long and due to the high altitude, long hiking distance, highly unpredictable weather, this hike is considered as a difficult hike


Please note that this hike is not recommended for absolute beginners and some level of hiking experience and preparation is needed.


The elevation change is over 600m from the starting point being at 3380m and going on to 4001m over the course of an 8km trail. The return is also 8km, hence a total distance of 16km


You’ll find more info about the hike at the Dragon’s teeth description
