Mount Kenya Tours

The volcanic peak which gave Kenya its name is second only to Kilimanjaro among Africa’s highest points. Not surprisingly it is predominantly hiking and climbing which draw people to the Mount Kenya National Park, with routes to match all abilities from keen first-timer to seasoned professional. Point Lenana is the most accessible of the mountain’s three peaks, but should only be attempted with guides.

From below, Mount Kenya is a stirring sight with its jagged outline sprinkled with snow and criss-crossed by glaciers. And this – remember – is just south of the Equator. The mountain’s steep slopes ensure dramatic changes in landscape within a small geographical area, rising from grass plains to alpine heights. The National Park, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also an important source of Kenya’s water, with rivers and other waterways attracting myriad bird species.

Practical Info:

Mount Kenya is 109 miles (175 kilometers) north-west of Nairobi, east of the Rift Valley. Accommodation facilities in the park are on the basic side.

5-Day Mount Kenya Climb from Nairobi: Sirimon - Chogoria Route

Mount Kenya is Africa’s second highest mountain, and is unarguably the more enjoyable mountain to climb, with stunning views, glacial features and varied flora. There are several alternative routes on the mountain, each joining at the trekkers peak at Point Lenana (4985m).   The Sirimon – Chogoria route may not be the fastest way up and down the mountain but it undoubtedly offers up the mountain’s best features. Sirimon is the most popular ascent with fantastic glacial scenery and steady ascent rate. Chogoria is the most favored descend route with dramatic gorges, waterfalls and mountain tarns. Whilst the highlight of this trek is summiting Point Lenana t in time for sun-rise, both the ascent and descent offer rewarding trekking and scenery.Note: The normal weather on Mt Kenya has clear mornings with mist from 10:00am and clear by evening. Early morning starts are the order of the day with a 2am start for the final ascent to Point Lenana, if you want to catch the sunrise.

Mount Kenya Trekking Through Sirimoni-Chogoria Route

This creative climb joins two of the most scenic routes up Mount Kenya, Sirimon and Chogoria, producing a remarkably diverse and spectacular trek. Sirimon coming off the west of Mount Kenya passes through the dry side of the mountain with its giant trees and rocky terrain, and the descent onto the Chogoria path is exactly different with its lush bamboo and highland forests. The final night time ascent of Point  Lenana can be as difficult as any ascent in East Africa, but the rest of the trek is generally considered easier than either Kilimanjaro or the Rwenzoris, and this is the most likely climb for actually seeing big game. Accommodation on this hike is in mountain huts.  Nonetheless, if you prefer to camp you can do so on all nights on the mountain.
