4 Day Sirimon Route
The following 4 Day Sirimon Route is our preferred route to Summit Safely for successful acclimatization. Anything works but the recent forest fires around the base of the mountain made the first day on Sirimon no longer pass through a beautiful forest.

Below is Our 4 Day Sirimon Route – itinerary
Day 1: Pick up from Nairobi-Naro Moru-Old Moses Camp
Left Nairobi early in the morning and drive to Naro Moru for 3 hrs. From here you walk for 9 km to the Old Moses Camp (3300 m) in hut for overnight.This two to three-hour hike is important for acclimatization and is also very fascinating as you walk through four of the mountain vegetation belts-the tropical rain forest, bamboo jungle, rosewood and heather zones.
These are also the places where animals are most likely to be seen.
Day 2: Old Moses Camp-Shiptons Camp
Your hike begins about 700 AM on the latest Sirimon route through the beautiful and unique Moorland Alpine Region. Today’s walking time is 5-7 hours depending on individual health and half-stop-a picnic lunch route. You arrive late in the afternoon at Shiptons Camp(4200 m) and have dinner and overnight here (in hut).
Day 3: Shiptons Camp-Hausberg col (Acclimatization)-Shiptons Camp
Acclimatizing day hike up Hausberg col (4600 m) enjoy the beautiful scenery of the western ridges, and then return for overnight to Shiptons.
Day 4: Shiptons Camp – Point Lenana – Shiptons Camp-Old Moses Camp-Nairobi
When attempting Point Lenana, a pre-dawn (3:00am) start is crucial.
Then, you will most likely succeed in reaching the summit as well as getting the clearest view of the majestic scenery. If the sky is clear across southern Kenya, you can see Mount Kilimanjaro’s peaks over 340 kilometers above the clouds. Then descend for breakfast to Ship tons camp 4200m then descend for lunch to Oldmoses 3000m camp and take back to Nairobi. End of our 4 Day Sirimon Route.
