I can vividly remember my first experience at Mt Kenya National Park Chogoria gate. It was too cold every inch of my body was freezing i found myself swearing to never setting foot back but who was i kidding? Am a nature lover,of course i went back too many times that i eventually found myself hiking because every time i went higher my curiosity was aroused.The experience was beyond words,yes it was tiresome,am not going to lie about that(it took me couple of days to recover) but if you love nature,you’ll thank me.Plus the awesome memories of the place beats it all.I still find myself wanting to go back.
You will be intrigued by the beauty of the landscapes,one of the most impressive in east Africa.Just to mention Mount Kenya features ice-capped peaks, outlandish glacial valleys, an array of crystal-clear glacial lakes (Tarns), and a myriad of other attractions. All the featured photos above are from Chogoria route which is considered to be the most scenic if you wish to hike.
There are quite a number of tarns in Mt Kenya, this beauty right here is Simba tarn
My all time favorite lake,ladies and gentlemen,meet Lake Michelson
Ain’t she gorgeous!A slice of heaven on earth. I was eager to get home and relax but walking away from this view was no easy thing to do
I mentioned tarns earlier,Hall tarns right there which by the way are a walking distance from Mintos hut and just below them from the hut is the beautiful Lake Michelson
My first time at Nithi falls. The are quite spectacular and i still can’t forget how cold the water was.
In case you’ve never been to Mt Kenya before,i hope you find these pictures inspiring enough.Keep warm, be ready to get tired but don’t give up,imagine witnessing these views live? besides,if Ray made it,why can’t you? Good luck
love & love
