The Outdoorer High90 Altitude Rush Program is a progressive 12-week advanced hiker course specially designed with three key goals in mind: orient you to hiking the high altitudes, build endurance to conditions in the high altitudes, and ready you up for any major independent mountaineering after that–such as Mt. Kilimanjaro or Mt. Kenya climbs.
If day hikes no longer excite you or you’ve already been to most hiking destinations, it’s time to let the beast hiker in you rise to the occasion. And The Altomatum is just the challenge for you! Your strength, endurance, and determination will be tested. You will question your sanity, as your faith in your hiking ability is given a good shakedown. If you are an advanced hiker, we are confident that you will sail through.
You’ve been everywhere, done it all, seen it all, hiked them all; it is time to up your game and unleash the beast in you. The Nyandarua Circuit is a two-traverse challenge that gets you around the entire Aberdare Range — while offering you cost savings.
The Southern Nyandarua Traverse is a challenging 12+ hour hike that takes you through the heart of the Aberdare forests, not just to the famous Kinangop Peak but also Elephant Hill Peak, with an exit via the Njabini gate. The hike is only for the fittest hikers who’ve done it all, seen it all, and are looking for a new adventure to spice up their hiking life. It is a treat for every hiker and adventure lover with an instinct to set new records.
The Nyandarua Ranges (Aberdares) are known for their high altitude, rolling moorland, and breathtaking views, yet hiking through most of the trails is an arduous task. The Northern Nyandarua Circuit moorland trails are especially scenic, featuring kilometers upon kilometers of shimmering golden moorland. However, getting to the scenic moorland is a whole different story.
Rurimeria combines a beautiful expansive moorland with a dramatic hiking experience, taking you past three false summits before getting to the actual summit — at 3,860m ASL. Despite being the third highest peak on the Aberdares, its trail is the longest, most exhausting in the Aberdare ranges. And that’s what makes conquering it so rewarding!
We immerse ourselves into the Nyandarua magic all over again, this time on a less-frequented gentle trail to the highest point of the third-highest mountain in Kenya, Oldoinyo Lesatima. Our access gate of choice is the Wandare Gate, off the Nyeri-Nyahururu highway near Mweiga.
We begin our expedition by driving 17km into the park, through the dense bamboo forest, to get to the trail starting point in the lower moorland. We then hit the gentle 9km trail through the beautiful-beautiful golden moorland to get to the Oldoinyo Lesatima peak at 4,001m above sea level.
