Tour Highlights

The summit at Lenana Peak can be reached in 4 days hiking as per the below itinerary.

However, we recommend an overnight acclimatization at the base in Nanyuki town. Mount Kenya Climbing Expeditions can helps in arranging for an extra day at an additional fee.

This Mount Kenya climbing route is much more scenic than Naro Moru route.

4-day Sirimon route is on the drier side of the mountain which offers some of the finest walking.

The air is tantalizingly fresh with crystal clear rivers running in the slopes, cold water gushing out of the woods, skirting the farms and down into the plains.
