4 Day Mount Kenya Trek
4 Days up and down Sirimon Route
Fit Adventure trekkers will find the Sirimon Route on Mount Kenya to be a fun and easily accessible trekking route. There is greater scenery than Naromoru, and some of the best walking is available on the dry side of the mountain. Ascend through the woodland and onto a broad slope to reach the summit location. The route begins close to Nanyuki on the northwest face of the mountain. The bunk house amenities are the greatest on this side of the mountain, and access is sufficient.
