Mt Kenya Climbing via Narumoro Route in four days

Address : Duration : 4 Days


Mt Kenya Climbing via Narumoro

Our Mt Kenya Climbing via Narumoro package gives you a chance to hike Mt Kenya via one of the shortest and most populous route.

The Naro Moru route is the fastest and therefore also the most popular route onto the mountain, being used by many of the tour and outfitting companies guiding clients up to Point Lenana.

The Naro Moru routes steepness and direct approach to the peak makes it more challenging to acclimatise on than others, however the itinerary offers plenty of time for a safe and successful ascent/descent.

The Naro Moru route also features the legendary “Vertical Bog”, a steep quagmire of wet moorland that can be extremely taxing and unpleasant after rains.
