This is an adventurous journey and a real experience for everyone. It is 2,330 meters above the sea level. People walk in a single file following a narrow path through thick forest and rocky ways. The walk starts at 6.30 am immediately after breakfast before the sun gets hot.

Drinking water and packed lunch is carried for the day. As you climb you are able to see the beautiful scenery of the area, the flow of river Ewaso Nyiro and its meandering, the beautiful and great scenery of the area, human settlements, Lake Magadi Factory.

Along the way one meets Maasai coming down ferrying milk. The escarpments are home to different indigenous trees some of which have medicinal value, the area has many springs of fresh water flowing and thousands of different bird species.

What’s amazing, the place is evergreen, quiet, so natural, cool and its air so pure. Lunch is taken at the water falls and the rest of the day is spent swimming and water chilling.

We descend back to the camp early in the evening to arrive in time for dinner and accommodation.
