  • Location: Magadi, Kenya.
  • Elevation Achieved: 1,760m/5,774ft (Summit).

The hike gets a hard rating because it’s a 7+ hour day hike with lots of thorny shrubs which your bag or shirt can easily get caught up. The hike begins by trekking through a dry lake & river bed, crossing a river and finally climbing up the mountain. There are fantastic views of the surrounding landscape including Lake Magadi, from the top.
