Mount Kenya Traverse

Altitude 4985m, Grade T4

Our traverse of Mt. Kenya makes a gradual ascent of Africa’s second highest peak, linking the Sirimon and Naru Moru trails


Our traverse of Mt. Kenya makes a gradual ascent of Africa’s second highest peak, with plenty of time to acclimatise to the altitude and climate. From Nairobi we cross the equator and head to Mt. Kenya’s Sirimon Park gate to commence our Mount Kenya traverse via Point Lenana (4985m), the massif’s highest non-technical summit. Our choice of route provides excellent acclimatisation by traversing and circling Mt. Kenya linking two of its most famous trails – the Sirimon and Naru Moru trails. The trek offers spectacular ever changing scenery: vistas of vast plains bordering the Great Rift Valley, dense forest, deep gorges, waterfalls, moorland, glaciers and mountain tarns.

For experienced climbers there is the option to add on a climb of Kenya’s technical peaks, Nelion (5188m) and Batian (5188m) (please contact the Adventure Peaks office for details).

Why not extend your stay in Kenya – we have a wide variety of safari extensions available, or head south to Tanzania and climb to the Roof of Africa on Mount Kilimanjaro.

It is vitally important that you have adequate travel insurance for your trip with Adventure Peaks. We recognise the complexity and variety of choice in the insurance market and know that many of you either have your own preferred insurer or have annual multi trip cover in place already. If this is the case, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your Adventure Peaks itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken.

Adventure Peaks do not provide any advice on travel insurance, although it is a requirement of our booking conditions that you have travel insurance which covers the activities which you are likely to be undertaking on your holiday. Cover must include emergency medical, helicopter evacuation, repatriation and rescue expenses.

It is strongly recommended that suitable cancellation insurance is purchased at the time of booking as all deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
