  • This mountain makes sure for us how the wildlife is so severe. I had learned it when I visited up to the top of this mountain. I was so excited and exhausted.
  • A beautiful crater Mountain, most frequently climbed mountain in Kenya - lots of dust though and mostly hot middday, you'd rather start your hike much earlier like 7pm /8pm and huge crowds on the trails.
