Climbing Mount Kenya

Climbing Mount Kenya is an experience scribbled on many hiker’s and adventure seeker’s bucket lists. The thought of standing atop Kenya’s highest point, entranced by the gleaming snow-white peaks, is a dream plenty hope to fulfill.

Mount Kenya National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve comprising thick tree cover, bamboo forests, alpine regions, and snow-capped peaks. It’s also home to glacier lakes, picturesque valleys, and many natural springs, making it a truly beautiful destination to visit.

Local communities regard the mountain as sacred, and it’s common to find pilgrims praying facing Mount Kenya.

Climbing Mount Kenya to Point Lenana takes 4-6 days, depending on the route and the hiker’s fitness level.

An out-and-back trip using the Sirimon route takes around 4 days, while a point-to-point hike from Chogoria to Sirimon or Naro Moru takes 4-6 days.

If you’re seeking a more challenging climb to Batian or Nelion peaks, it can take up to 8 days.
