Mt Kenya Climbing - Sirimon & Chogoria Route

Mt. Kenya is roughly circular, about 60km across at the 200mm contour, where the steep font hills rise out of the gentler slopes of the centered highlands. At the center of the massif, the main peaks rise sharply from around 4,500m to the main summit of Batian 5,199m, Nelion 5,188m and point Lenana 4,985m. Other major summits on the mountain include Point Piggott 4,957m, Point Dutton 4,885 and Point John 4,883m. Of the three main peaks (Batian, Lenana, and Nelion), only point Lenana can be reached by trekkers and the other two being only for technical climbers.

Go to Mount Kenya's expedition and challenge yourself. Mount Kenya trek difficulty and Mount Kenya technical climbing routes. Sirimon route Mount Kenya is one of the best climbing routes accessed from Nanyuki. It is best to go Mount Kenya hiking in the months of January to February and also August to September due to having fine weather. Mt Kenya climbing during the other months can be wet and rainy. You can read more about climbing Mt Kenya and hiking mount Kenya The 4 nights, 5 days Mount Kenya trek is via the scenic Sirimon and exit through Chogoria route. This creative climb joins two of the most famous routes up Mt. Kenya, Sirimon and Chogoria, producing a remarkably diverse and spectacular trek. Sirimon coming off the west passes through the dry side of the mountain with its giant trees and rocky terrain, and the descent onto the Chogoria path is exactly different from its lush bamboo and highland forests.

The final night-time ascent of Lenana can be as difficult as any ascent in East Africa, but the rest of the trek is generally considered easier than either Kilimanjaro or the Ruwenzoris, and this is the most likely climb for actually seeing the big game. Transport to the mountain base is included from your Nairobi city hotel. The bulk of the snow-capped Mt. Kenya looms over the entire region of central Kenya.

The mountain is part of the central highlands. It is the highest mountain in Kenya and in Africa after the Mt. Kilimanjaro. For hikers, point Lenana at 4,895 m is the ultimate destination.
