5 Days Mt Kenya Climbing Safari via Sirimon Route


5 DAYS 4 OVERNIGHTS IN SIRIMON OUT CHOGORIA

 

(BEST OF MT KENYA) – CIRCUMVENTING THE PEAKS

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 leave Nairobi at 6am (latest)

We arrive at Nanyuki at 10 am where we have lunch. At 11.30 am 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 00800 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.

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.
