The locals believe this is one of their warriors who is sleeping and will one day wake up. Okay, the first time I heard about this story it did not make sense until I saw the Hill myself.

Well, am not insinuating to believe their story but the shape of the sleeping warrior is distinctively a sleeping human.

Clearly, you can see the head, eyes, chin, neck and chest as shown in the image. This one is up to you to choose to believe their theory but the bottom line is, sleeping warrior Hill is simply incredible.

The Hill is easily accessible from Pelican Lodge Lake Elementaita. If you want to do a remarkable hike to Sleeping warrior and the nearby Ugali Hills. Pelican Golf Resort will be the ideal place of accommodation.
