Mount Kenya Peaks
MTK5DPC

 5 days Sirimon Peak Circuit 

 (All Days on the Mountain

A moderate summit trek enriched with a fascinating peak circuiting trek for extra acclimatisation.

 Preamble: An itinerary that is highly recommended for trekkers seeking a 5 day trek on Mountain Kenya offering a high levels of success to reach the hiker's summit (Point Lenana - 4985m). The added advantage of this moderate trek is the fact that it offers extra acclimatization when you trek partly or all around the peaks ahead of attempting the summit. You'll also enjoy facilitating views of the high peaks from all angles. The hike goes up through montane forest, bamboo, heather and Mooreland zones to Shiptons camp (4200m) below the peaks from where you skirt the high peaks to the east, bypassing Hausburg col, Oblong tarn and Two-tarn.

Accommodation on the trek is camping throughout, in roomy mountain tents shared by two people. When camping on our trips you will not have to participate in camp chores.

MTK5DK-S

5 days Kamweti to Sirimon route 

(All Days on the mountain).

The journey up the adventurous Kamweti route commences at Castle Forest Lodge on the southern slopes of Mount Kenya. The trail up is fairly challenging: rough underfoot, with dense montane forest, lush stands of giant bamboo, muddy when wet, no huts and a forest track more used by wild animals than humans. At Mackinder's camp 4,300m you might, for the first time, meet other trekkers since Kamweti route connects with the more commonly used trails at the Teleki Valley en-route to the hiker's summit (Lenana peak – 4,985m). On the average you will be walking for 5-7 hours per day. The crew will set our overnight camps in the wild campsites or in the neighborhood of available cabins located along our trail.

4 Days Mt. Kenya, Sirimon - Naromoru Crossover

4 Days trek on Mount KenyaSirimon to Naro Moru is the most common traverse on Mt. Kenya.

Accommodation is available in mountain huts throughout the trip.

D2 Details: Trek to Shipton's camp. The hike is awesome but a good test on individual endurance. The exciting trek up takes you across hills and valleys through the entire stretch of the sprawling moorlands where you see several unique and interesting plants and animals including the giant groundsels, lobelias and the mountain rock hyrax.

This is unavoidable on any route but we aim to reach the summit and witness the magical sunrise over the equator at 6.30am.
