Climbing Mount Kenya

Naro Moru – Sirimon Route

4 Days from $ 790 / person 

Home » Tours & Safaris » Climbing Mount Kenya
This is the most popular route to Mount Kenya’s peak, Point Lenana, which stands at 4985 meters. The hike is the steepest and quickest way to the summit, ascending the mountain from the west while taking in the natural beauty around you. The route provides some of the greatest tourist accommodations, as the cabins on this side of Mount Kenya are of high quality, making up for the lack of picturesque views. But don’t worry, there’s still much to see.

Itinerary highlights:

1. Traverse the mountain from East to North via the Chogoria and Sirimon routes.
2. Point Lenana on a high of 5199m
3. Climb Point Lenana, the highest trekking peak on Mount Kenya.

  • Activities and excursions as detailed
  • All accommodation
