Part of the Nyiru range, Mount Nyiru is located in the remote northern regions of Kenya. There is a popular 2-3 hour climb up the western slope from Tuum, the small, seldom-visited village tucked into the western base.
The hike offers up expansive views of Lake Turkana, Lake Logipi, and the Suguta Valley. Due to the remote location, visitors to this area are infrequent. For those that do venture this way, there is the solitary Desert Rose Lodge – an oasis sunk into a landscape so untamed many of its visitors fly in.
