4 Days Mount Kenya Trekking | Mt Kenya Climbing Expeditions | Naro Moru Route

Distance: 40 km | Difficulty: Demanding | Start/Finish: Nairobi
Naro Moru route on a 4 days climbing  expedition of Mt Kenya is the most popular route although not the most scenic and the most fastest route to point Lenana. Take this classic Naro Moru route up Mount Kenya through the notoriously treacherous vertical bog and into the

wide Teleki Valley beneath the Tryndall, The Lewis Glacier.
Though the summit can be reached in 4 days as per the below itinerary, we strongly recommend an overnight acclimatization at the base, Naromoru River Lodge. This can be arranged for at an extra fee.



Detailed itinerary

Day 1: Nairobi | Meteorological Station 3-4 hrs, 10km, 400m ascent
Transfer to Naromoru Park Gate for registration and where the 4 days  trek starts, 2600m from the gate, keep to the park track, which follows the crest of a board ridge between the Northern and Southern Naromoru valleys. The going is easy and it’s a pleasant walking through the forest. About two thirds of the way up after the bridge there are good views to the left north down into the Northern Naromoru valley. The trek ends at Met station 3,000m where you will have dinner and overnight. B, L, D

Day 2: Met Station | Mackinders Camp 5-6 hrs, 10km, 1200m ascent
Head uphill on the track to pass the radio mast on your right after about half an hour. The trek runs into a path and after another 30 minutes, you will reach the end of the forest belt and enter the moorland. This is the vertical bog conditions range from damp to glutinous depending on when it last rained. Continue through until the going improves and you reach a fork overlooking Teleki Valley to reach Mackinders Camp, 4,200m. Dinner and overnight at Mackinders Camp, B, L, D
