The Apostles Creed

July 15 @ 4:30 pm - July 16 @ 9:30 pm

KSh3,250 – KSh3,700
twelve apostles
The Twelve Apostles is a little-known and rarely climbed mountain peak on the Aberdare Range, near Mount Kinangop and only about 2 km apart but there’s no trail. Bushwhacking a route takes a lot of time and effort. The terrain is steep and dense. There are no guarantees for the summit but the adventure is going to be worthwhile.
PS: This is an extremely challenging scouting expedition, you are required to have done Mt Kenya to qualify and signup.
