Karuru waterfall sits well inside the Aberdare National Park at an altitude of 10508 feet and 3187 meters above the sea level. It is duped the longest waterfall in Kenya with two others overlooking from the adjacent side of the cliff, giving a spectacular view.
Discovering environmental resources is an adventure in itself. Enviro Wild is found on the grounds of learning from reality. Travelling for nature is what motivates us.
On the 3rd day of my stay in La Digue, we decided to take a walk around the island. We planned to complete the full circuit. After ¾ of our walk, we encountered a challenge, it started drizzling, the tide was high, and the waves were strong. I wasn’t brave enough for it, so I turned back. Remember, I could not ride a bicycle- I walked alone.
Walking is a daily activity in Seychelles. More so, in La Digue, where you can either cycle or walk. There are no public buses.
Hey! Don’t you want to explore? I find walks to be a better way to explore a particular place than when being picked at one point and dropped in another by car
I consider Ngare Ndare forest a place to meditate while bonding with nature. The fact that walking takes place under the thick forest brings solace. The walk alone is calming. At the waterfalls, keeping off unnecessary noise; the natural sound from the trees, birds, and the waterfall itself offers an excellent opportunity to meditate. That is what most people go there for. To have a peace of mind, soul-search and maybe reconnect with nature.
This was a tough hike. We had been warned. We hiked along the sea, serving ourselves with a beautiful view. However, the terrain was steep. With the chains installed on some areas made it possible for hikers to support themselves from falling, especially on sharp, rocky sections. That just tells you how hard this hike was.
I hold dear memories of Liguria; because of the food (Focaccia di Recco) and hiking along the Sea to the Gulf. The Hiking part which was done under the hot sun was challenging, given that some areas were rocky, steep, and risky to the extent of using chains for support against falling.
