4 Days Mt Kenya: In Chogoria Out Sirimon
The Chogoria route is our recommended and arguably the most magnificent ascent route to the summit area. It is the driest route up the mountain and the walk beside the Gorges Valley truly spectacular. The descent by the Sirimon route takes one through some beautiful forest tracks and completes the traverse of the mountain. This route is the most beautiful of the access routes to Point Lenana.
§ Traverse the mountain from East to North via the Chogoria and Sirimon routes.
§ Climb Point Lenana, the highest trekking peak on Mount Kenya.
§ Ascend via the quieter and most dramatic Chogoria route
§ Accommodation is in huts or tents in Mt Kenya
After early morning breakfast, descend for 3 hours to the Sirimon Park gate to catch a vehicle for the return journey to Nanyuki for lunch. Later transfer back to Nairobi arriving by 1700hrs.
Day 2's hike is a long one involving a steady climb up to Mintos. Hikers who are not limited by time can take an overnight stopover at the Nithi Camp (3300m) mid-way to Mintos. From here they can explore the nearby Nithi Falls or climb Mugi hill (3500m) for better acclimatisation. Alternatively you can hike directly to Mintos/Halltarn and spend an extra day here instead to recuperate and explore the Gorges Valley which also accords you a better acclimatization due to the higher altitude.
