A quick trek to Mount Kenya that`s only recommended for the well-acclimated and energetic mountain hikers. It is a challenging hike to the summit following straightforward paths and making use of accommodation huts located along the way. However, attempting the summit on Day 3 and descending up to the Sirimon road head on the same day will be difficult though achievable.
What to Expect
This is a common itinerary for hikers with limited amounts of time for their hike or those on a weekend break. The routing is quit convenient for larger trekking parties since it follows the same trail up and down allowing those unable to reach the very top to wait behind at the lower camps as the fitter ones attempt the summit. Optional night spent at our base lodge before the trek allows for a time to prepare and to do a nature hike in the Mount Kenya forest kicking off the much – needed acclimatization. If time does not permit for this, it`s passable.
