Mount Kenya – Lake Ellis




Tour Type


Lake Ellis is located on the eastern slopes of Mt Kenya and is the largest lake of Mt Kenya’s great lakes after Lake Alice and Lake Michaelson. A trip to Lake Ellis gives you a glimpse of Mount Kenya with stunning views of the mountain and beautiful sceneries along your hiking trail.

We begin the day with an early morning pick up from Nairobi at 0430hrs and drive North to Chogoria town where we pick our guide and onwards to Chogoria’s Mount Kenya National Park Gate. The hike starts at the Gate after a short stretch. The trail gets you right into the forest and takes you through the dense forest covered with both indigenous and man-made trees and to the scenic Nithi Falls. The forest is a habit for both wildlife and a wide range of bird species. The hike then proceeds on wet moorlands and after covering a trek close to 7km, the trail leads to a scenic landscape of the breathtaking Lake Ellis.

The hike guarantees a clear view of the peaks on a good day. Enjoy the stunning views of the lake and the surrounding area before descending back via the same route. We will then embark on a return journey back to Nairobi, to arrive in the evening.
