Northern Nyandarua Circuit – Bundled Ticket

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.

Seven Ponds Hike

Located conveniently between the notoriously steep Table Mountain and Rurimeria trails, the Seven Ponds hike combines the dramatic steepness of her two siblings. The 5.5km trail starts near the Kwa Matu Shopping center and ends at an elevation of 3,831m at the seven natural ponds in the northern Nyandarua moorland.

Rurimeria Moorland Challenge

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!

Oldoinyo Lesatima Dragon’s Teeth Hike

We set out on the Dragon’s Teeth trail via the Rhino Gate, hoping to conquer ourselves on the Satima Peak. The gentle 8km trail will take us through a hiker’s paradise, trekking through fields of lush alpine vegetation, spotting a few wild animals, and walking past countless rows of magnificent craggy moraines, dubbed “Dragon’s Teeth”.

Mt. Kinangop Tribute — Mutarakwa Forest Trail Hike

Rising to an elevation of 3,906m (12,815ft) above sea level, Mt. Kinangop is tough and awe-inspiring at the same time. It is the second-highest peak of the Aberdares and delivers a challenging but immensely rewarding hike. This duality has earned it the moniker “Mother Kinangop”.

Aberdares Table Mountain Hike

The 4.5km Aberdares Table Mountain Hike trail starts at the Kwa Matu Shopping Center, taking us through an initial steep ascent, before easing onto a brief, gentle trek through the moorland. The trail then abruptly ends at the Table Mountain peak, at an elevation of 3,792m above sea level.
