4 Days Naro Moru Sirimon Hike
OVERVIEW

The outstanding feature of this route is its dense forest and evidence of wildlife. You will most likely be graced with tree-loving friends like the bushbucks and Columbus monkeys on your trek. The hike begins from the West, where the headquarters of the Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) for the mountain is located, at about 2400m. Although one of the most popular routes, hikers highlight the steepness and loose gravel on the trail.
