This 7 Day Mount Kenya Climbing Adventure allows you to ascend to Point Lenana, the third highest peak on the Mountain at (4985m). This tour is offered via the Sirimon – Chogoria Route as is one of the least challenging, and does not require technical equipment or climbing experience. For this reason, it is one of the most popular routes on the Mountain.
This trek takes you up through the tropical rainforest at the base of the mountain where Buffalo and Elephant still roam before passing through a bamboo forest. As you gain height the vegetation changes to heathers and Lobelias that seem like alien life forms. Towards the top you encounter glaciers and the only plants are moss and lichen.
