Kimunye

June 25 @ 6:00 am - 6:30 pm

Free – KSh1,000

Set on a buffer zone created by large-scale tea plantations and man-made forests, the Kimunye trail is the definition of an instagrammable trail that offers photo lovers a host of undulating views and shaded paths to create memories. Halfway through the trail is located a thunderous waterfall with crispy clear waters from Mt Kirinyaga. For the brave drifters, one can take a dip in the icy waters, the trail is mostly gentle, with short steep sections while accessing the waterfalls.

PS: This is an introductory trail, logistical challenges may be experienced in the organization of the experience
