Spring Water with Bath

Natural Purging Spring Water Baths

These photos were shot on the dramatic ledge of the mountain's high table a month after the last rain. Hence, the flowing freshwater from the Highland brooks in these photos was not rainwater in its origin but instead chilled and underground fresh spring water. This phenomenon of freshwater creation is simply Highlands and mountains affected by gravity, naturally downloading the torrential deluges from the rainy seasons into the natural aquifers.

Warm Sunbathing but Cold Mornings

Characterized by frigid nights, the average temperature of the mountain Entoto's plateau is below comfortable bathing degrees with its average temperature of about 12 ° C. Thus, the result of these long and cold nights, in turn, determines the degree of cooling effect in the mentioned natural Highland pools. However, the mountain afternoon hike is usually hot, so any refreshing bath is enticing, fun, welcoming, and comfortable.

A French traveller, Jules Borelli, states that it was a place of much lightning, thunder and fog, while his compatriot, Charles Michel, remarked that ''exposed to the wind, difficult to access, and without drinking water'' (Ibid, p.103).

Harmonic Currents Along the River
**Caution During Rainy Seasons

Since all streams around Entoto run up within a short distance to the highest part of the plateau, there is no risk of being surprised by far and accumulated sudden river flow from an unknown range. There is no known weakness in the deep rock pools that could constitute a magazine water mass just waiting to break through a weak point in the cliff bottom. However, no person should walk on the riverbanks of the ravines in the aftermath of heavy rain, as this poses an immediate danger to life. A mistake towards the slippery ground can be fatal despite the apparent alert about the fast water flow. This torrential force along the river banks can quickly take a person or their pet beyond rescue in a relentless power of a rushing water flow.
