Named Sleeping Warrior for its resemblance to a man lying on his back hence the name, the hike starts with a trek along the shores of Lake Elementaita. A walk around the shore suddenly brings to view the amazing hill to your eyes. The climb takes us through Sleeping Warrior – a sharp ascent to the nose (the peak) which provides a beautiful view of the lake and the caldera before descending towards the Eastern side to attempt the second.
