Mt Kenya Naro Moru Route - Trekking & Climbing Mount Kenya

4 Days Mount Kenya Climbing NaroMoru Route
Distance: 40 km | Difficulty: Demanding | Start/Finish: Nairobi

The most popular route although not the most scenic. It is also the fastest route to point Lenana. Take this classic route up Mount Kenya 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.

Transfer to Naromoru Park Gate for registration and where the hike starts, 2600m From the gate, keep to the park track, which follows the crest of a board ridge between the Northern and Southern Naromoru valleys.

This is the vertical bog conditions range from damp to glutinous depending on when it last rained.
