|MOUNT KENYA ROUTES|
|Naromoru Sirimon Route|
|Sirimon 4 days|
|Sirimon Chogoria 5 days|
|Sirimon Chogoria 6 days|
There are 3 principal summit routes (and 4 lesser used routes), namely Sirimon, Chogoria and Naro Moru. These can either stand alone, or together as variations with other routes. The most scenic and interesting of the three main routes on Mt Kenya is the Chogoria route. It starts at Meru Bandas at the base of arguably one of the beautiful Lake Michaelson. As it is a slower ascent it offers more prospects for acclimatisation and also time to enjoy the magnificent scenery. Another route is Sirimon, which has the most gradual ascent and also ascends on the direst side of the mountain, meaning less chance of rain. It starts in a yellowwood forest, into a shrubland, a forest of scenecios up to Lenana.
When combined over 5 or 6 days, it forms the Sirimon - Chogoria route.
