After having failed to climb Point Lenana in 1992 I wanted to go back to Mount Kenya and try Point Lenana again but also climb Batian. After doing some research on the Internet I booked with GoToMountKenya. A perfect decision. Evans was very responsive and answered all my questions within a day. When we met Zachary, the trekking guide, and... More

This August 2014, taking the Chogoria - Sirimon route, my husband and I climbed Mount Kenya. A fantastic experience. We arranged the trek through Gotomountkenya who were excellent from start to finish. The manager, Evans, with whom we organised the trek is knowledgeable, helpful and responded promptly to all queries. The team of five who accompanied us on the trek... More

May be it is because I have faced many mountains in this precious life just like every other human being. I love the challenge of conquering a mountain once every three - six months. I have attempted several routes on Mt Kenya but I must say that Naromoru - Chogoria route has sated my quest for mountaineering. This route displays... More

My wife and I decided to hike up Mount Kenya while standing on the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in 2010. In the meantime we’ve hiked to Everest Base Camp in the Himalayas, the Aconcagua base camp in the Andes and around Torres Del Paine in Patagonia, Southern Chile to name but a few notable highlights so we are relatively experienced...

Great alpine climbing. And what a cool mountain. Read the route guide carefully! We got lost at twice! First time going left of the gendarme and the second time before the down-climb part.

We had a fantastic time trekking to Point Lenana with "Go To Mount Kenya". Their guide and porters were extremely competent and happy to help in any way. The organisation was extremely efficient. We did the Chorgoria - Sirimon traverse of the mountain over 6 days. The way up was very quiet. On the summit day we reached the top... More

My girlfriend and I decided to take a 6 day hike where we did the Chogoria route up the mountain and we took the Sirimon route down. We still think this was the absolute best choice. The trek up is really beautiful every step of the way and perhaps the best thing about it is that the nature changes all... More

In July 2014 we organized a group excursion for our running club from White Rock BC Canada to Mt Kenya. Ours was mostly a senior group so we asked for a longer excursion to allow time to acclimatize to the altitude. 1st night at Nanyuki, then Sirimon Gate to Old Moses Banda, 3rd night in pup tents at Liiki South,...

I agree with the other reviews. It is a great hike to Point Lenana, with extraordinary views and flora. If nearby - don't miss this! I hiked Mount Kenya (point Lenana) ultimo October 2013, with six days on the mountain, going up from the Sirimon gate and down to the Narumoru gate. A detailed day-to-day description with photos can be... More
