Tugen in pictures


A close range view of Morop hill, the second highest point of Tugen Hills after Saimo. It is over 2,270m high


Kikojo falls on its way to Lake Baringo. On the foot of the water fall, there's a 50m cave where the Tugen rain god used to live before it was evicted by a courageous Arap Tarno. You have to penetrate the water fall to gain entry.


The house of thunder: Since the infamous shooting of the rain god, one can now enter the cave which has seven compartments inside. The rain god succumbed to the wounds inflicted along Kerio valley in Keiyo. Lucky it was pregnant by the time and it's generation line never died.


Before the Kipkokel forest was cut down to pave way for the construction of the multi billion Kirandich dam, the rain god used to wander here. Red mercury used to drip though fissures of gorges inside the forest... the mercury story though is for another day!


This is the aerial view of Kirdam from the roof of Tarambas forest westwards...


... and gazing eastwards is a magnificent view of Lake Baringo. You can observe the 350km distant Mt. Kenya from here when the sun is in the equator.


Finally, you are here either birding...


... picnicking...


... or hiking.
