5 Days Mount Kenya Climbing Hiking Chogoria Route is the most scenic and interesting of the three main routes on the mountain. 5 Days Mount Kenya Climbing Hiking Chogoria Route takes you up Mt Kenya which is the second highest peak in Africa after its taller neighbor Mount Kilimanjaro, which lies some 320km away in the south and is visible on a clear day. 5 Days Mount Kenya Climbing Hiking Chogoria Route passes through the enchanting Hall Tarns and looks down sheer cliffs into the spectacular Gorges Valley and onto the beautiful Lake Michaelson.
5 Days Mount Kenya Climbing Hiking Chogoria Route takes you to the Mount Kenya Forest Reserve which provides the ideal habitat for vast herds of buffalo and elephant as well as a bright kaleidoscope of birds and other wildlife. At higher altitudes, the forest gives way to lush bamboo groves where Columbus monkeys leap and leopard prowl and, higher up, there is tussock grass and alpine moorlands, jewel-studded by icy glacial tarns and moraines.
Mt Kenya is the ultimate hiking and climbing destination in Kenya. It is the highest mountain in Kenya and the second highest in Africa at 5199m above sea level and features ice-capped peaks, outlandish glacial valleys, an array of crystal-clear glacial lakes (Tarns), and a myriad of other attractions.
This creative climb joins two of the most scenic routes up Mount Kenya, Sirimon and Chogoria, producing a remarkably diverse and spectacular trek. Sirimon coming off the west of Mount Kenya passes through the dry side of the mountain with its giant trees and rocky terrain, and the descent onto the Chogoria path is exactly different with its lush bamboo and highland forests. The final night time ascent of Point Lenana can be as difficult as any ascent in East Africa, but the rest of the trek is generally considered easier than either Kilimanjaro or the Ruwenzori’s, and this is the most likely climb for actually seeing big game.
