The most popular route although not the most scenic. It is also the fastest route to point Lenana. Take this classic route up Mount Kenya though the notoriously treacherous vertical bog and into the wide Teleki Valley beneath the Tryndall, The Lewis Glacier.
Though the summit can be reached in 4 days as per the below itinerary, we strongly recommend an overnight acclimatization at the base, Naromoru River Lodge. This can be arranged for at an extra fee.
The bulk of the snow capped Mt. Kenya looms over the entire region of the central Kenya.
The mountain is part of the central highlands. It is the highest mountain in Kenya and in Africa after the Mt. Kilimanjaro.
For hikers, point Lenana at 4,895 m is the ultimate destination.
This is accessed from different routes depending on availability of time, budget restrains and climbing experience. The views en-route, the physical exertion and the rough climbing experience combine to bring out a well-deserved sense of accomplishment to the climbers.
We undertake Mt. Kenya climbing expeditions on all routes. Two of the most popular routes have been described here.
Leave Nairobi to Naromoru village for and early lunch. Transfer to Naromoru Park gate where the trekking starts. Hike for 10km to met station (3048m) for dinner and overnight.
After breakfast hike for 12 km to Kackinders camp (4200m) for dinner and overnight.
Attempt Pt Lenana (4985m) at 3.00 am. After sunrise descend to Mackinders for breakfast. Descend further down to Met Station for dinner and overnight.
Leave the mountain via Naromoru gate for a short drive to the village where you connect your transport back to Nairobi where the tour ends.
