5-Days Mt. Kenya Climb Sirimon Route: The most famous climbing routes on Mount Kenya – the Sirimon and the Chogoria Routes, make the tour a remarkably diverse and spectacular hike. Sirimon Route coming from the west passes through the dry areas of the mountain with giant trees and rocky terrain. The descent on the Chogoria Route is exactly the opposite of lush bamboo forests and highlands. This is one of the most straight forward routes. You’ll enjoy trekking this route as you listen to stillness of this park. The spectacular sceneries lay before you, while chirping of the birds and other creatures fills the air with the sounds of African wilds.
