One of the benefits of being young and healthy is the gift of boundless energy that can be channeled into to beneficial physical activities like hiking. And Kenya is home to some of the most beautiful hiking spots. Health benefits of exercise remain undisputed; your will body always rewards you for taking care of it. In recent years conversations around living a healthy lifestyle have increased; resulting in people going to the gym, but also resorting to 'shortcuts' such as  the power of the all 'magical' slim tea and even going under the knife for the 'perfect body' thanks to unnecessary societal pressure, no doubt backed by the quest for social media likes.
Thankfully more people are tapping into the health gem that is hiking.We have a beautiful country with no shortage of places to explore. Hiking is the true definition of Mind - Body - Soul nourishment. From mental, physical and social well-being, the health benefits are inexhaustible.
Here are some beautiful hiking spots in Kenya that I have been fortunate enough to hike with a group called Summit Seekers Kenya and would highly recommend:
