Mount Kenya Trek - Sirimon and Naromoru Crossover

From: $767 per person (4 days, 3 nights)

mountken
This is one of the most popular routes for those who wish to hike Mount Kenya.  You will ascend through the diverse, breathtaking and sometimes bizarre vegetation zones of Mount Kenya before reaching the hiker's summit - the magnificent Point Lenana.

Camping is not necessary on this hike unless preferred, as mountain hut accommodation is available throughout the trip.  Hikers who choose this route will have a reasonably good chance of reaching the summit, although less experienced hikers who may not wish to take on the full challenge can cross over via the easier summit circuit trail, and rejoin the other hikers at Mackinder's Camp.

It is also possible to add an extra day to the trek, staying at Shipton's Hut, to better acclimatize ahead of the summit attempt.
This private tour is completely customisable - you can change the duration, where you visit and the hotels you stay in - just let us know what you'd like to change when you get in touch with us.
