5 Days Climbing Mount Kenya Chogoria Sirimon Routes; 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.

Accommodation on this hike is 2 nights in mountain huts and 2 nights camping. Nonetheless, if you prefer to camp you can do so on all nights on the mountain.

Day 1
Old Moses Camp

You leave Nairobi at 8.30am, transfer to Sirimon Park Gate (2660m) the base of your Mt. Kenya trail. Here you meet with guides / porters and start your climb at 10am. After a 3-hour walk with lunch on the way, you will head to Old Moses Camp (3300m) on the edge of the mountainous forest where you will spend the night.

Day 2
Shiptons Camp

You leave the camp at 8.30am and continue your hike through the moorland characterized by many varieties of senecia and lobelia to Shiptons Camp (4200m). Lunch will be taken on the way. The 14km-hike takes about 6 hours. Overnight will be at Shiptons Camp just below the 3 majestic peaks – Batian, Nelion and Lenana.

Day 3
Peak Lenana

After an early morning breakfast at 4.00am, the trek leads via a steep scree to Simba Cole and on through rocky terrain to Point Lenana. After summit photos you will descend again to Simba Cole and continue to Mintos Hut (4200m). Here you have a lunch break, before passing along a ridge overlooking Gorge Valley and Lake Michaelson. In the late afternoon you will reach your destination for the day – a fly camp at the road head at 3300m.

Day 4

You descend to Meru Mt. Kenya Bandas at 3000m. On your short 2-hour hike you may encounter buffalo, klippspringer, zebra and sometimes elephant. At the bandas 4×4 vehicles will be waiting to drive you through a dense bamboo forest on slippery roads to Chogoria. Here you will meet your driver, have lunch before biding the crew farewell and proceeding to Nairobi or your next destination.
