5 Days Chogoria - Sirimon
After an early breakfast, we leave latest at 7.00am for Chogoria where special landrovers are waiting to take us to the Meru Mt. Kenya Bandas (3000m). After a quick lunch, we start our hike through a scenic landscape with forest patches and open plains, home to varied species of wildlife. Today’s destination is the Road Head Camp at 3400 m. The camp has already been set up by our crew and after dinner we retire early to our tents.
After breakfast a 10km hike along a ridge, with spectacular views of Lake Michaelson in the Gorge Valley below takes us close to the Hall Tarns. Here we take a lunch break before we tackle a steep descend to the Gorge Valley floor for a scenic camp night on the shores of Lake Michaelson. Dinner and overnight will be at the fly camp.
Today’s hike is rather short. We hike along the Gorge Valley towards Point Lenana. The hike gets gradually steeper and finally we ascend a ridge and get to the Simba Tarn (4600m), our camp site for the night at the base of Point Lenana. We enjoy our dinner while marveling the spectacular views of Nelion and Batian, the main peaks of Mt.Kenya and Point Lenana our challenge for tomorrow.
After an early morning breakfast at 5.00am, the track will lead via a steep screed to the Simba cole and further on to Point Lenana (4895m). After the summit photo, we descend via Simba Cole to Shipton©s Camp for a rest before we proceed with our descend for another 15km to Old Moses Camp. Here we enjoy our dinner and have a well deserved rest.
After breakfast we descend (9km) to the Sirimon Gate where our vehicles will be waiting for us to take us to Nairobi or any other destination after having bade the crew good bye.
