6-Day Mount Kenya Exploration

Trekking Overview

6 Days Sirimon Naro Moru with Peak Circuit Route is accessed via the North West corner of the mountain and the Kenya Wildlife Service has the Sirimon National Park Gate at the roadhead where you can pay your fees, there is also accommodation available here. The route is usually considered one of the easier routes as it climbs relatively gradually with only a couple of steeper sections to reach the top camp.

It is also currently the most popular route, though it is by no means busy. There are two Huts with dormitory rooms as well as toilets and camping sites; Old Moses (3400m) and Shiptons (4200m). The route follows a vehicle track for the first day, open moorland and the MacKinder Valley for the second day, and then the North approach to Point Lenana on summit day.
