Mount Kenya Climbing Sirimon Route

4 Days Mount Kenya Climbing Sirimon Route

4 Days Mount Kenya Climbing Sirimon Route

Mount Kenya Climbing Sirimon Route has more scenic than Namoru route that offers finest walking on the north west side near Nanyuki.

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. Access is adequate and the bunk house facilities are the best on this side of the mountain.

Though Mount Kenya summit can be reached in 4 days as per the below itinerary, we strongly recommend an overnight acclimatization at the base in Nanyuki town. This can be arranged for at an extra fee.
