Mt Kenya trip 4 days/ 3nights trip Sirimon - Naromoru route

Day 1:
After Breakfast, all the equipment required for your climb is sorted and organized. After a brief stop at Nanyuki for a photo opportunity at the Equatorial line, the vehicle proceeds onto the Sirimon Track as far as the Mount Kenya National Park Gate. From here you hike 9Km up to the Old Moses Camp (3300m)  for over night in hut. This two to three hours hike is essential for acclimatization and is also very interesting as you hike through four of the mountain vegetation belts - the tropical rain forest, bamboo jungle,rosewood and heather zones. These are also the areas where you are most likely to see animals.

Day 2:
Your hike starts around 0700hrs going via the new Sirimon route through the beautiful and unique Alpine Moorland Zone. Walking time today is 5-7 hours depending on individual fitness and stopping half- way for a picnic lunch. You arrive at Shiptons Camp (4200m), late afternoon and have dinner and overnight here (in hut)

Day 3:
A pre-dawn (3:00am) start is essential when attempting Point Lenana. You are then most likely to be successful in reaching the summit as well as having the clearest view of the majestic scenery. If the sky is clear right across the southern part of Kenya, you will be able to view the peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro above the clouds over 340 kilometres away. Then descend to Mackinders camp for breakfast, afterward descend to the Met station on the Naromoru track, traversing the steep marshy section known as the Vertical Bog. Returning by another route gives a fine contrast to your hike, and is only 3 to 4 hours walking. Stay an over night at Met Station (in hut).

Day 4:
Met station to park gate /Nairobi
This will be an easy hike down for two and a half hours, walk down
Walking through the tropical rain forest, bamboo jungle, rosewood to reach Naromoru park entrance for signing out and pick up a pick up to Nairobi or other planned destination
