At 5199m high it requires amount of energy to conquer while at lesser peak as Lenana point (4985m) it reached easily. The climbing takes between 3 to 5 days crossing forest with wide varieties of vegetation as Podocarpus and Grounsel before reaching high to equatorial region.
Mount Kenya routes are Naromoru, Sirimon and Chogoria each with different taste. Naromoru is fastest route to Lenana point but less scenic compare to other two routes. Chogoria route is most scenic and Sirimon route is most interesting route as it cross drier side of the mountain.
