11 Days Western Kenya Safari Circuit- The Crying stone

On top of the hills just south of Kakamega is the mysterious Crying Stone of Ilesi. The Crying Stone is a local landmark that consists of a large boulder resting on top of a massive pillar of rock eight meters high. The formation is supposed to resemble a solemn head falling on weary shoulders and from the top “tears” flow down the length of the column. The legend has it that the “tears” never stop flowing, but the stones were definitely dry when I came to visit. Although it seemed to be in good spirits on the day I came, remnants of many sorrowful days can still be seen. The stone is stained a dark green color from many years of weeping.

The cause of this natural curiosity is a hidden reservoir at the top of the stone “head.” When it rains the reservoir fills up with water and slowly flows through small cracks down the side of the “shoulders.”. Moss that grows inside the reservoir soaks up water and allows it to flow for many weeks at a time, even during a drought.
