The challenge

  • Watch the sunrise over the Kenyan plains from Point Lenana
  • Ascend via the Sirimon route and descend via the scenic Chogoria route
  • Climb the second highest mountain in Africa at 4,985m
  • Enjoy the views of three rugged glacier-clad peaks from Shipton’s Camp
  • Amazing variety of flora and fauna on the mountain

The impressive triple peaks of Mount Kenya are a sight to behold! Our route uses the gentlest ascent track on the mountain with an additional acclimatisation day at 4,200m. Trekking the Sirimon - Chogoria route is designed to give you an excellent chance of summitting, whilst keeping the climb challenging - not forgetting the stunning views! Passing up through the montane forest, bamboo and heather zones to glaciers, then down past spectacular chasms, jagged peaks and the glaciated "U" shaped valleys and waterfalls, our goal is Point Lenana, at 4,985m, the second-highest peak in Africa.
