We then travel by four wheel drive to Mount Kenya National Park.and the Sirimon gate. After registering with the Park and finishing formalities we begin our hike to Old Moses Hut through forest land.

Day 2: Old Moses - Likii North - Shiptons Camp.

We continue climbing to Likii North (3993 m / 12,500 ft), an excellent intermediate camp for proper acclimatization. During the climb we get our first spectacular vistas of the main Kenya massif as well as views across western Kenya. After crossing many streams and the beginning of the unique moorlands, we arrive for afternoon tea and overnight.

Day 3: Likii North - Shiptons Camp
Our route on this day takes us out of the moorlands, a spectacular zone of mosses and fog that often feels mystical and magical. The day continues through giant lobelia and rock spires which line the valley walls en route to Shiptons Camp (4200m / 13,800ft). We have dinner and overnight at the hut.



Day 4: Shiptons Camp -Mackinders Camp
During this day we leave the valley and truly enter the alpine zone. It becomes rockier and less vegetated as we enter the higher reaches. We cross high on the western flank of the massif and then drop back down through high alpine lakes, eventually arriving back at a similar altitude that we began the day. This day has some of the most breathtaking views of the mountain as we come around the vast southwestern buttresses. We overnight in Mackinders Camp (4200m / 13,800ft).



Day 5: Mackinders Camp – Point Lenana –Mintos
We wake up pre-dawn 300am in order to get high on our objective before sunrise ,We head back up towards the eastern side of the mountain where Point Lenana and the Shipton route on Nelion come into view. We pass Point John and other prominent rock spires en route to the Austrian Hut (4790m / 15,700ft). . After a spectacular (and cold) morning we arrive at Point Lenana (4985m / 16,355ft) for an incredible view of the surrounding region and the twin peaks of Nelion and Batian.
