4 Days Mount Kenya Trek is a four-day adventure that takes place on Mount Kenya and begins and ends in Nairobi. You will hike to the summit, known as Lenana peak, along the scenic Sirimon route.
Mount Kenya is Kenya’s highest mountain and, after Kilimanjaro, the second-highest mountain in Africa. The mountain’s highest peaks, Nelion (5,188 meters/17,021 feet) and Batian (5,199 meters/17,057 feet) are distinctive twin peaks and provide challenging climbing routes. The highest trekking peak in the Mount Kenya range is Point Lenana (4,985 m/ 16,355 ft.). A region of low-lying shrubbery is followed by a belt of naturally occurring, uniform bamboo as hikers ascend. Finally, the altitude is too high for plants and animals to survive, leaving behind a bleak moonscape of jagged rock and ice. These 3 million-year-old, eroded volcanic slopes offer a difficult and breathtaking finish.
Expect to pass through distinct regions with a variety of vegetation as you hike. Gentle farmlands give way to a dense rain forest full of camphor trees, monkeys of various species, buffalo, elephants, and even leopards. Hiking Mount Kenya promises the experience of a lifetime with its snow-covered peaks, panoramic views of its forested slopes, and the surrounding African plains.
