mount Kenya climbing, climbing mount Kenya

A popular short trek, suitable for seasoned Mountain hikers. It is a moderate hike that follows straightforward paths. However, attempting the summit on Day 3 and descending up to the Sirimon Park gate on the same day will definitely be a difficult though practical task. Unless preferred, camping is not necessary as accommodation is available in mountain huts throughout the trip.

Day 1
Morning transfer from Nairobi, arriving at Mountain Rock Lodge for lunch. Then drive to the Park gate. From here, hike through montane forest, bamboo and rosewood up to the OldMoses Hut, gaining an elevation range of 700m in 3-4 hours. Dinner and Overnight at OldMoses Hut (3300m)

Day 2
A long and rather tiring day leading to the base of the high peaks. Today's trek is largely through the moorlands and the Mackinder Valley, with good views of the main peaks and a brief stopover for picnic lunch. Total walking time is approx. 7 hours gaining 900m in altitude. Dinner and Overnight at Shipton's Hut (4200m)

Day 3
Pre-dawn attempt of the summit staLJT at 0300hrs, taking 3-4 hours to reach Pt. Lenana 4985m (the hikers summit) in time to watch the sunrise. On a clear day you can see the snow capped summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro miles away to the south. Descend back to shipton's camp for breakfast then walk further down to the Sirimon park gate to catch our vehicle for transfer back to the base lodge for a hot shower and lunch. Then back to Nairobi arriving there by 1700 hrs.
