Dense mountain forests cover the middle reaches of the mountains. The highest point is Satima at 4,001m and home to Kenya’s highest waterfalls, Karuru waterfalls the largest in Kenya, Chania and Gura water falls.The Aberdares, declared a national park in 1950 offer exceptional hiking terrain and stunning views. The Aberdare National Park is part of the Aberdare Mountain Range, a fascinating region of Kenya which, according to traditional Kikuyu folklore, they are one of the homes of Ngai (God). The Aberdare Rain forest is a vital water catchment area that feeds the entire local and Nairobi water supply needs. Deep ravines cut through the forested inclines, through which hidden trout streams flow and waterfalls cascade down hundreds of feet of rock face. Mountain ranges and peaks soar to around 12,900ft (4,001meters), giving way to deep V-shaped valleys with streams and rivers cascading over spectacular waterfalls. This area is a must for landscape lovers.
