Mt Kinangop is the second highest peak in the aberdare ranges mountain. It stands at an altitude of 3906asl second to Satima peak which stands at 4001mtrs asl. On this adventure packed expedition we shall combine Mt Kinangop with Elephant Hill peak voted to be the most favourable and scenic hike in the aberdares.
The hike starts from njabini forest gate with a gentle climb through a man made forest followed by forest farms. The incline gets steeper as you tackle the bamboo forest. Incase it’s wet, it gets more interesting. The bamboo forest ends at the point of despair( a false peak). After a further 2.5 km you will be at the elephant Hill peak. After sampling the views from this peak we descend the valley bottom for 200mtrs before the climb starts to Mt Kinangop peak. The peak overlooks Kinangop plateau and the Great rift Valley. This is a full day event.
