Distance: 53 km | Difficulty: Moderate  | Start/Finish: Nairobi
Mount Kenya Trek Sirimon Route 4 days  is much more scenic than Naromoru and it is on the drier side of  Mt Kenya which offers some of the finest walking. Climb up through forest into

a wide ridge approach to the summit area. sirimon route climbing expedition starts on the northwest side of the mountain near Nanyuki. Access is adequate and the bunk house facilities are the best on this side of the mountain.
Though Mount Kenya summit can be reached in 4 days as per the below itinerary, we strongly recommend an overnight acclimatization at the base in Nanyuki town. This can be arranged for at an extra fee.
