Sirimon Route, Naromoru Route Trek Mt Kenya

The route that we take up Mt Kenya has been designed for optimum time on the mountain to acclimatise, as well as getting away from the bulk of hikers. This less utilised route is very beautiful with incredible views of the surrounding plains and small lakes, as well as the immense peaks of Batian and Nelion.

This route offers a unique experience and surveys two of the major valleys of Mt. Kenya. The Sirimon route up passes through rolling hillsides covered with unique high elevation vegetation. Surviving in the harsh temperature range of the equatorial highlands is not easy, and these plants have adapted some very unique ways of ensuring their survival. On the way out you will be offered some of the finest views of Mt. Kenya's spectacular rocky peaks.
