Rurimueria Hill Moorland Trek

Rurimueria Hill is also known as Rurimeria HillThe hill earns its name from weeds that grew at its summit, known in the Maasai language as Olurumueria.  

Mount Kenya Fitness training program continues. We return to one of the must-visit trails in Aberdares, the Rurimueria hill moorland trek. It is paramount to invest in a preparation hike to conquer Mount Kenya successfully. Our starting point was at International Life House. It took us 3 hours to get to Ndunyu Njeru Market by bus. Ndunyu Njeru is where the Kenya wildlife service office is; this is where you pay before proceeding to the forest. We also paid for an armed guide and continued to Gathuthi Primary, where the trail starts.

Rurimueria welcomes with a steep stretch. Technically, it takes about 10 to 15 minutes to walk to the electric fence from the school. The electric fence separates the residential area from the forest. The trail is approximately 8 kilometers. From the starting point to the summit, then back to the starting point again. Generally, It will take two to four hours to trek up the Rurimueria hill. 1 to 4 hours to descend. It may take longer in the event of rain. The reason you should have a proper trekking boot. Your level of fitness also determines how much time you take.
