Mount Kenya (Sirimon Route)

from
KSh28,000

The Mount Kenya hike is a challenging and enjoyable journey to the highest trekking and climbing peaks: Batian (5,199 metres or 17,057 feet), Nelion (5,188 m or 17,021 ft) and Point Lenana (4,985 m or 16,355 ft). From the summit, there is a beautiful view of the dramatic volcanic massif and the two highest peaks, Batian and Nelion, as well as long views over the central plains of Kenya. It has long been a popular and very attractive hike through an ancient landscape dotted with glaciers, rock spires, high tarns and some beautiful unique flora and fauna like the giant groundsels and the odd-looking rock hyrax which has evolved from the elephant.

There are three popular trekking routes: Naro Moru, Chogoria and Sirimon.
