AAHK 401: 4 Days Mount Kenya Climb Sirimon Route
Distance: 53 km | Difficulty: Moderate | Start/Finish: Nairobi


Summary
Much more scenic than Naromoru and it is on the drier side of the mountain which offers some of the finest walking. 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 of $110 per person. Mount Kenya Trekking: Sirimon Route.
