Lake Michaelson

Located in the heart of Mount Kenya, this small glacier lake collects the meltwater that comes from its impressive heights. The lake got its name from a friend of the first explorer to summit Mount Kenya. Halford Mackinder always commented this person had taken much interest in his 1899 expedition and thanked him for it in this completely immortal way. One of its most spectacular features is the infinity pool-like effect on its outlet stream, right on the outer edge of the lake.  Its water is also rich in fauna, with plenty of Rainbow Trout inhabiting it. The lake boasts 360-degree breathtaking views. It is so high up, that vegetation is scarce.
