4 Days Sirimon Naromoru Route

10% Off
Special Tour 3 day Availability: July 30, 2021
Mount Kenya, Kenya

This route offers the optimum balance of good acclimatisation and scenery. The trail follows the stunning Sirimon route up through dramatic glacial valleys and descends down the pretty Naromoru trail – the most direct traverse on the mountain.

Nevertheless our trek down the mountain through Naromoru may be the fastest, but it’s not the most interesting or dramatic. Some trekkers use this route for the descent only while others use the Chogoria route because it has much more scenaries.
