There are several routes used on the mountain though our itineraries use the three main routes that are most often associated with trekking Mount Kenya. We also offer our popular ‘Round the Peaks’ circuit trek which includes a traverse of the mountain taking an ascent of the Chogoria route and coming down via the Sirimon route.
We operate standard 4-7 day treks in Kenya, but we can also organise private itineraries of any duration, technical climbs and safaris.
Naro Moru Route, 4 Day Trek : A popular route as it is the fastest route to point Lenana, though not the most scenic. Take this classic route up Mount Kenya though the notoriously treacherous vertical bog and into the wide Teleki Valley beneath the Tryndall, The Lewis Glacier. Though the summit can be reached in 4 days this is recommended for strong trekkers and those that acclimatise easily.
Sirimon Route, 5 Day Trek : A more scenic option than Naro Moru and on the drier side of the mountain which offers some good walking. Climb up through forest into a wide ridge approach to the summit area. The route starts on the northwest side of the mountain near Nanyuki.
Chogoria Route, 6 Day Trek : This route option is by far the more scenic and interesting of the 3 routes used with stunning views across Lake Michaelson along the way.
Kenya Peaks Circuit, 7 Day Trek : Taking the Chogoria route this trek includes a ‘round the peaks’ route which brings your descent on the mountain via the Sirimon route.
