Thiririka

August 6 @ 7:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free – KSh1,000

Thiririka river flows freely cascading to Tumathi waterfalls coined to mean, too much. Dense bushes engulf the forest while stinging leaves do the pricking. Interestingly, bamboo trees are found nestled at the center. Coffee plantations mushroom in and out of the farms. A tarmacked road connects the trails. Crossing on robust iron pipes arouses more fun.
