In the early morning, we will pick you up from your hotel in Nairobi or Nairobi International Airport. To get fully prepared for the following trekking tour, you are advised to arrive in Nairobi one day earlier. 

After a warm greeting, a comfortable vehicle will take you to the gate of Sirimon Park (2,650 meters, 8,700 feet), where your Mount Kenya trekking will start officially. Along the way ascending Mount Kenya, we will trek through the lush forest, which boasts rich bamboos, giant heather plants and other African indigenous plants. In addition to appreciating the natural beauty of plants, we will also have the opportunity to encounter naughty monkeys, buffalos, birds and other wild animals in this area.

After breakfast in the morning, we will continue to hike uphill to the Shipton camp. As we trek upwards along the trail, the local professional guide will give a detailed introduction to many peaks that we pass by. We will first hike across the Ontulili River, then turn right through the Moorland, later cross the Liki North River, and finally get to the Mackinder's Valley. Along the way, we will take several breaks and you could enjoy some leisure time to take photos. At the end of the day, we will arrive at the well-equipped Shipton Camp with an elevation of 4,200 meters (13,780 ft).

Day 3: Reach Point Lenana for its stunning views, Trek downhill to Met Station
Today, we need to get up before dawn and try to reach Point Lenana before sunrise so that we could admire its stunning sunrise view. At 4,985 meters (16,355 ft) above sea level, Point Lenana is the highest place on our climbing route. On the way up the hill, we need a torch to light up the road ahead of us, and we could enjoy the starry sky at the same time. After around 3.5-hour trekking, we will reach the Point Lenana, where we can also appreciate the faint outline of the Mount Kilimanjaro on the horizon.

Then you will enjoy a simple breakfast and afterwards, it's time to descend and have a hearty breakfast at Mackinder's Camp. Later, we will continue our Mount Kenya trek downhill to Met Station (3,000 meters; 9,843 feet) of Naromoru route. Upon arrival around noon, we will enjoy a full lunch.
