Available Date: 6th May 2023 | Any other private day
Grading: Difficult 21Km

Hike Summary

Kijabe Hill is located North West of Nairobi and is part of the Great Rift Valley Escarpment. The Trial starts off at the Kijabe Junction, trekking past people’s homes and farms into the village.
After about 3hrs of walking, the trail takes you to the top of the first hill. The descent from this first hill takes another 1 hour with an additional stretch along the railway line before reaching the hot springs and the tunnel. The adventure leads us to walking through the dark tunnel, an underground water tunnel that will test our boldness as we try to reach the other end.
From the tunnel, the trail goes up to Kiharu and then up to the waterfalls before embarking on a steep ascent back to the start point.

The hiking route follows the Kijabe river with a series of several stunning waterfalls and takes approximately 8-9 hours to complete the loop.
