MOUNT KENYA CLIMBING- 4 DAYS SIRIMON - NARO MORU CROSSOVER

Trekking Feature
This is the most common traverse on Mt. Kenya. Unless preferred, camping is not necessary as accommodation is available in mountain huts throughout the trip. Although the trip offers reasonably good chances of reaching the summit, those who may not manage the challenge can cross over via the easier summit circuit trail and join up with other hikers at the Mackinder's Camp or consider adding on a day at Shipton's 4200m to acclimatize better ahead
of the summit.
