About Sirimon Route

A trek through Sirimon Route is like no other. It providers trekkers the opportunity of experiencing an easier and shorter trek than Naromoru while still experiencing all the beauty of the surroundings as they pass through the drier side of the mountain. The route begins in the northwest and passes through the forest to reach the summit area. There is adequate access to the area and bunk housing facilities are best on this side of the mountain.

* Private Trek:You can upgrade to a private trek for an additional cost.

*Accommodation:Will be in campgrounds. All your equipment will be carried by vehicles or local porters; you will only have to carry a daypack with personal gear.

* Meals:Will be prepared from fresh and local products. Good standards of hygiene will be used and all food is prepared by our own staff. We can cater for special dietary requirements and there are no extra food-kitty payments.

* Physical Requirements:You do not need to be a professional climber to enjoy the scenes of Mount Kenya, but you do need to be physically fit. The climb is well worth the effort and no technical skill is needed.

* Visa Information:Most nationalities can now apply directly for their visa online prior to arrival. See if you are eligible:https://immigration.ecitizen.go.ke/index.php?id=6

An extra day for acclimatization before the trek is strongly recommended and can be arranged for an additional cost.

On day 3, an optional hike down via Chogoria route available at an extra cost.
