Mt. Satima via Dragon Teeth Route, Aberdares (4001m-13127ft)

After arriving at Dragon teeth some of us proceeded for another hour and a half to get to Mt. Satima still in the Aberdares

The hike to Mt. Satima got steeper and the altitude made it hard to walk. We were lucky the sun was out but it was very cold. There were a lot of water bogs and deep holes on the way.

The last stretch before Mt. Satima peak was very steep and the altitude made us extra tired.

Being at the peak of Mt. Satima is breathtaking since I’ve always wanted to go. But the cold breeze was too much and my hands were numb.

Gloves and a mouth mask are advisable if planning to stay at the peak for a while.

And behold, my all-time hack to beating some of the altitude sickness symptoms.

In all, it was a successful hike and very scenic.
