The Sirimon Track is one of the finest approaches to the peak area. It offers some of the best views of the main peaks, with a gradual climb, which can be done leisurely. We traverse the mountain by ascending the Sirimon Track.
We arrive at Nanyuki at 10 am where we have lunch. At 11.30 am we shall depart for the Sirimon Park gate.
Our Mountain trek starts from this point after a few formalities at the Gate, an easy trek in the afternoon to help acclimatization. Overnight will be at Old mosses (3300m) in the high altitude mountain cabins. By the end of the day we will have done 5 hours of walking.
By the end of this day we shall have done about 8 hrs of walking (Leisurely). This will be a true taste of patience, endurance & determination.
Ascend the Sirimon Track to Likii North Valley, in this beautiful little valley below the subsidiary peaks of Teleki and Sendeyo, two ancient parasitic vents of the main peaks. (3990m).Climb out of the North Valley and into the Mackinders Valley, one of the broadest valleys on the mountain, with many giant groundsels. Camp at Shiptons Cabins the of the Mackinder’s Valley, just below the main peaks of Batian and Nelion (4,300m).
We shall spend this day acclimatizing at the base of the peaks, where we shall climb to the view Point of Oblong & Nanyuki tarn. Time Permitting, we shall descend a little bit further to have a glimpse of the other side of the mountain( but from this angle, we shall have an excellent view of Batian , Nelion& Point John not for getting the Diamond collier as well as the “Am phi theatre”
We start early so that we can reach the Peak at Sunrise
Alpine ascent to the highest peak, Pt. Lenana (4985m). En route up the north face little used by tourists. Four hours of stiff walking to the summit. This will be the most challenging bit of the Mt Trek and will require a strong mind to reach the summit. At about 0730 Hrs we shall start the descend back to Mintos Hut where we shall have break fast. Latter on we shall then descend to the Mt Kenya Meru Banda’s.
