Mount Kenya Trek

Altitude 4985m, Grade T4

Warm up in the Aberdares with excellent acclimatisation for the traverse via the Sirimon and Chogoria routes

Description

Exclusive private departures, min 2 people. Please call our office to book.

Our traverse of Mount Kenya is preceded by spending 3 days in the Aberdares National Park where as well as acclimatising by ascending to its highest point Le Satima Peak (4001m), this will give you the opportunity to adapt to the climate and culture of Kenya. The park is rich in alpine flora and fauna such as Black Rhino, leopards and elephants, magnificent waterfalls, and over 250 species of birds including sunbirds and eagles

After crossing the equator and a night in a hotel we head to Mt. Kenya’s Sirimon park gate to commence our 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 Chogoria trails. Mount Kenya trekking offers spectacular ever changing scenery: vistas of vast plains bordering the Great Rift Valley, dense forest, deep gorges, waterfalls, moorland, glaciers and mountain tarns.

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