5 Days 4 Nights Sirimon Trek (Sirimon In –Sirimon Out)


5 DAYS 4 NIGHTS SAFARI TO MT. KENYA

 

Designed for those who have a minimum amount of time and who want to reach the third highest peak Pt. Lenana. This challenging, non-technical ascent can be made by any healthy person.

 

 5 DAYS 4 NIGHTS SIRIMON TREK (Sirimon In –Sirimon Out)

 The Sirimon Track is one of the finest approaches to the peak area. It offers some of the best views of the main peaks, with a gradual climb, which can be done leisurely. We traverse the mountain by ascending the Sirimon Track.

 

Day 1

We depart from Nairobi at 6am (latest) for a road transfer. We arrive in Nanyuki at 1030am where we shall have lunch.

At 1130 hrs we shall depart for the Sirimon Park gate.

Our Mountain trek starts from this point after a few formalities at the Gate, an easy trek in the afternoon to help acclimatization. Overnight will be at Old mosses (3300m) in the high altitude mountain cabins. By the end of the day we will have done 5 hours of walking.

 

Day 2

The day starts at 00700 Hrs

By the end of this day we shall have done about 8 hrs of walking (Leisurely). This will be a true taste of patience, endurance & determination.

Ascend the Sirimon Track to Likii North Valley, in this beautiful little valley below the subsidiary peaks of Teleki and Sendeyo, two ancient parasitic vents of the main peaks. (3990m).Climb out of the North Valley and into the Mackinders Valley, one of the broadest valleys on the mountain, with many giant groundsels. Camp at Shimptons Cabins the of the Mackinder's Valley, just below the main peaks of Batian and Nelion (4,300m).

 

 Day 3

This day shall be spent relaxing at the base camp as we acclimatize. You shall explore the other lower peaks.

 

Day 4

The day starts at 00200 Hrs

We start early so that we can reach the Peak at Sunrise

Alpine ascent to the highest peak, Pt. Lenana (4985m). En route up the north face little used by tourists. Four hours of stiff walking to the summit. This will be the most challenging bit of the Mt Trek and will require a strong mind to reach the summit. At about 0730 Hrs we shall start the descend back to shimptons camp. The rest of the day shall be spent resting at he camp having conquered Mt Kenya (Pt Lenana ).

 

Day 5

The day starts at 00800 Hrs

We shall leave Shimptons camp and start our 4 Hrs walk out of the Park. We shall have a stop over at Old Moses where we shall have lunch. We shall be met by our van at the gate and head back home with a stop over at Nanyuki.
