WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT RURIMERIA HILL

Difficulty: High to Very High
Altitude: 12,670ft
Trekking Time: 8-9 hours
Rurimeria Hill forms one of the towering peak of the Aberdares. Most noteworthy  it stands tall at 12,670 ft which makes its higher than Elephant hill and only 200 feet of the famous Kinangop. Considered one of the toughest day climbs in the Aberdares it is a trek for a tough hiker.

ITINERARY

Head out early at 0500hrs to arrive at Geta Bush in the am.
Directly from the town, a wide path leads to the foot of the hill. Follow a path that leads up the forest to Bamboo and heather zones to reach the moorland. Furthermore the route then follows a wide arch around the valley with a few false summits before reaching the summit on the long ridge to the east.
In short the hike is a complete horseshoe before going down the opposite southern ridge to head back to the starting point. Note this trail is 100% unbeaten so dress appropriately. Finally we enjoy late lunch before departing for the journey back to Nairobi arriving late in the evening.

      Hi Sabrina,
      The trail is a about 15kms but the terrain is quite challenging. It takes about 8-9hrs to summit the hill and get back to the start point.
