Mount Kenya Sirimon Trek five Days, Kenya
The Sirimon Track, one of the finest approaches to the peak area. The Sirimon Track offers some of the best views of the main peaks, with a gradual climb which can be done leisurly. We traverse the mountain by ascending the Sirimon Track and descending the Naro Moru Track.
Morning spent sorting and organizing personal equipment for the mountain trek. Lunch at the lodge. In the afternoon you are driven to the Sirimon Gate and then to roadhead at 11000 ft. An easy walk in the afternoon to help acclimatization.
