Event Details

Kinangop Hike, overnight (camping) Njambini gate to Kinangop peak return
The Kinangop Peaks are on the southern end of the Aberdares Ranges, and are about 90km north of Nairobi. The Aberdares are the water catchment area feeding two of the largest dams supplying over 95% of Nairobi’s water needs, i.e. Ndakaini Dam in the Thika region and Sasumua Dam near Njabini town. The Aberdares slopes are also one of the major bread baskets for vegetables supplied to Nairobi groceries, and possibly the most significant source of the second most important staple food consumed in Nairobi, the Irish potato. “Chips”
This is an “Xtrym Hike”, experienced hikers only, no first time hikers allowed, we will be hiking from the Njambini gate and camp a makeshift camping area and continue to Kinangop peak early morning Sunday. This is going to be a very long and tedious hike.
