This sleepy town is the unlikely capital of Eastern Province, but despite its local significance there’s not a lot to do, and it’s a long way from the mountain. The only reason to pass through is en route between Meru and Nairobi along the quieter back road. The town is at its best around October/November, when the local jacaranda trees are in full, purple bloom.
