Trekking down Mt Kenya following the outflow from Lake Michaelson
Looking back at the platue where Lake Michaelson is placed, in the background the peaks are visible and the waterfall behind Lake Michaelson can also be gleamed on the escarpment. Mount Kenya is a trekkers paradise. The slopes are covered in a thick layer of scree, which makes for an easy descent, and the views of the surrounding countryside are simply stunning. This mornings hike begins at the outlet of Lake Michaelson, where the river cascades down the mountain in a series of spectacular waterfalls. The trekking route follows the river downstream, winding through dense forest and past hidden valleys. The Going-Down-Hill River eventually leads to the moorlands below, where hikers can find respite from the sun in the shadow of Mount Kenya’s icy peaks.
