Description

Summary

Distance: 40 km | Difficulty: Demanding | Start / Finish: Nairobi

This is the most popular route although not the most scenic. It is also the fastest route to summit point Lenana. This classic route up Mount Kenya passes though the notoriously treacherous vertical bog and into the wide Teleki Valley beneath the Tryndall, The Lewis Glacier.

Though the summit can be reached in 4 days as per the below itinerary, we strongly recommend an overnight acclimatization at the base, Naromoru River Lodge. This can be arranged for at an extra fee.
