Backpacking / Trekking in Mt. Kenya, Mount Kenya National Park, Central Province Kenya
There are several trekking routes in Mt. Kenya but due to various reasons, they are not frequently practiced, thus leaving Naro-Moru, Sirimon and Chogoria as the most used trekking routes to Point Lenana at 4985 m/16355 ft. Among these, the most popular and frequently used route is the Naro Moru trail which is approached from the west at 2500 m/8202 ft.
It is not a scenic route and has a fast ascent profile and can bother individuals who wish to accustom to the climate at a more slower pace. However , it features the legendary ” Vertical Bog” which is a steep quagmire of wet moorland which is extremely fierce and unpleasant after the rains.
Chogoria on the other hand is the most scenic and tackled from the east at 3000 m/9842 ft while Chogoria is the least used though it features the most gradual ascent allowing for best acclimatization options. The trekking tours normally take 3-5 days depending on the route option.
