Hike Summary

The Ragia Circuit starts at Sasumua Dam through Chinas Camp Gate. It then proceeds deep into the Bamboo Forest following elephant trails and makes a sharp ascent before heading down to Sasumua River, home to a magnificent waterfall called No 18. From the waterfall, the trail leads to an easy terrain before another sharp descent that leads to a cascading waterfall and famous Mau Mau cave where Mau Mau Generals like Field Marshal Dedan Kimathi and General China used to hide. We will walk back to the start on a scenic forest trail.
