A 4 Days /3 nights Mount Kenya trek route which is more scenic than Naromoru and it is on the dry side of mountain which offers some of the finest walking.

Climb up through forest into a wide ridge approach to the summit area. The route starts on the northwest side of the mountain near Nanyuki. Access is adequate and the bunk house facilities are the best on this side of the mountain

Day 1: Nairobi – Sirimon gate - Old Moses Camp

After an early breakfast we commence a 7-8 hours trek to Shipton's camp (4,236m). Today's trek is long and interesting but also a good test on individual fitness. You’ll ascent close to 900m going up the surreal Mackinder Valley with its strange vegetation of giant lobelia and groundsel, unique to equatorial African mountains. Here we stay at Shipton's hut (4236m), just below the glaciers and jagged peaks of bare rock that surround the main summits. {B, L, D}
