The combination of the two most scenic routes to the peak of Mount Kenya, the Sirimon and Chogoria, offers a unique experience. The trek has a great variety of scenery and becomes through this a spectacular route.
The Sirimon route comes from the west of Mount Kenya and passes through the dry side of the mountain. Giant trees and a rocky terrain awaits you here, before you descend onto the Chogoria path, where you can spot a totally different view with lush bamboo and highland forests.
The final night, when it is time to climb up to the Point Lenana, can be as difficult as any ascent in East Africa, but the rest of the trek is generally considered easier than the Kilimanjaro or the Rwenzoris.
