Nandi County: Chepkiit waterfalls are located between the borders of Chesumei and Mosop constituencies in Nandi County, Biribiriet location in Mosop.

It is situated between the border of Nandi and Uasin Gishu counties that is Mlango area about four and a half km to the river bank from the Eldoret –Kapsabet main road.

‘Chepkiit’ means ‘view from a distance’ and is a warning about the perfidious rock surfaces which is very greasy thus one is supposed to be very careful when hiking on the rocks.

These Falls on Kipkaren River are extraordinary in the rainy seasons and the surroundings are in open natural woodland which provides beautiful scenic sites for the tourists.

If one arrives to the place earlier in the morning, he/she might find a rainbow formed by the morning sun refraction from the water droplets of the falls.

The area also has indigenous trees, cliffs and hanging rocks which act as a home and hunting grounds for a variety of bird species such as the red-cheeked cordon blue, grey heron and red billed hornbill among others.

Historically the place is believed to have been a dying place for the elderly people who were tired with life during the prehistoric times and that they could jump themselves there.

Addressing area residents at the site, the Cabinet secretary for the ministry of Tourism, culture and cooperatives James Kipchoge Kijo who had toured the site urged residents to maintain the scenic tourist attraction as it will benefit them when utilized well.

He appealed to the residents to do cultural activities in the area like weaving, making guards and other artifacts.
