Moutains are calling!

As hikers & adventurers, A Great Hike is our oasis. It provides a sense of fulfillment & serenity. As we trek up the greatest mountains the idea of becoming one with nature becomes a reality.

Join the #hikers in Kenya as we take on Mt Kenya the highest mountain in Kenya and the second-highest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro measuring 4,985 metres via Sirimon Route

The hike will take four days through Sirimon route this is the easiest route to reach Point Lenana. The route is on dry side of the mountain so it offers magical views and affords walks through old growth forest on lower slopes and giant heather, Alphine flower…s and Lobelia in higher elevations.

Day 1

Depart Nairobi at 6:30am Road trip to Sirimon gate and have a picnic lunch before entry. The hike start from the Sirimon Park gate (2660m). From the gate, trek up through magnificent mountane forest, bamboo and giant heather zone before reaching the high altitude moorland and our first hut (Old Moses camp3,300m) for evening tea, mountain entertainment dinner and overnight stay. This is a gentle trek that takes 3-4 hrs gaining an elevation of 680m. From Old Moses camp you can see the summits of Batian and Nelionn peaks
