Happy New Year!
Ragia forest forms part of the Aberdare forest ecosystem that has a huge spectrum of flora and fauna.
The Ragia circuit starts at Sasumua Dam through Chinas camp gate. It then proceeds deep into thick bamboo and follows elephant trails down the valley to pipeline leave way. The trail follows the leave way and suddenly makes a steep drop to Sasumua River which leads to a magnificent waterfall called no 18.
From the waterfall, the trail leads to sharp descent that leads back to the pipeline way leave which forms better part of the trail which again leads to a cascading waterfall and famous Mau Mau cave where Mau Mau generals like Field marshal Dedan Kimathi and general China used to hide.
From the waterfall, the trail leads out of the forest through the thick bamboo forest while walking along a forest road. The whole circuit is about 18km and takes approximately 7 hours.
Distance from Nairobi to the starting point is approximately 2.5 hours.
