5 DAYS MOUNT KENYA SIRIMON ROUTE, DOWN CHOGORIA ROUTE

 

Itinerary Overview

 
 
The Sirimon route is the relatively used by mount kenya climbers of the three main routes, and it features the most gradual ascent profile and best for acclimatisation options. The route passes through very impressive Yellowwood forests in the lower reaches and features abundant wildlife and beautiful alpine scenery higher up. The Austrian Hut and Point Lenana are reached from the head of Mackinder's Valley via Simba Col.
