Kenya’s largest forest reserve, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, snow-capped Mount Kenya features dramatic landscapes of dense woodlands, waterfalls, moorland and precarious-looking rock pinnacles; at the top is permanent ice in 11 glacier lakes. The destination for trekkers is Point Lenana; at 4985 metres, the third highest peak. It’s a strenuous hike, but manageable if you are reasonably fit and allow sufficient time to acclimatize to the altitude.
Peaks & Safaris trek the following routes: Naromoru – Sirimon, the Naromoru – Naromoru Circuit, and Sirimon – Chogoria; best taken leisurely in six days, although they can be done in four. For experienced climbers, as this involves the use of ropes, ice-axes, crampons and other specialized climbing gear, we also arrange the technical climb from Point Lenana to Batian Peak(5189 metres) at the summit. Elsewhere in Kenya, we also offer trekking on Mount Elgon and Mount Longonot.
