Overview

There are different trekking routes up and down Mount Kenya. We’ve chosen the most scenic and spectacular of them all for this fitness program – the Chogoria route. This route will take you through Lake Ellis, Lake Michaelson, Nithi Waterfalls, Mugi Hills, Giants Billiards Table Mountain, the Gate, Gorge Valley, The Temple, Hall Tarns, Point Lenana, and other features of Mt Kenya. We will climb for 4 Days 3 Nights to allow the bodies to acclimatize and disharmonize properly.

Itinerary

Day 1: NAIROBI – CHOGORIA – LAKE ELLIS 9.8 Km approx 4 hrs-6Hrs

Pick up in Nairobi Early Morning to depart to Chogoria Gate Mount Kenya. Trek starts at Chogoria gate 2950M ASL following the track through giant heather and forest through Chogoria Road Head where the path drops to cross a stream to Nithi falls. Here you will enjoy the magical roar of these Nithi falls, each drop gushing over the rocks. The views are amazing; the fall has a beautiful serenity pool at the bottom, veneer clear plunging down the mountain. Visit the Caves and The Gate Gorges as we exit the waterfall, to the lunch point

Proceed, to Mugi Hills with magical views of Table Mountain, descend to Lake Ellis which will be our home for the Night. Nothing beats the feeling of spending a night just next to a lake and a night full of stars. This is already a special experience since not many get to spend a night on this lake. Lake Ellis lies at 3470m ASL. additionally, a visit to the aforementioned features helps the body to acclimatize gradually thus climbing with ease.

DAY 2: LAKE ELLIS TO MINTOS CAMP (4,200m, 12km) App 4 hrs-6Hrs

Early start after breakfast to again follow well off the beaten track to follow a ridge up the mountain for about 3 hours to eventually join the tourist track on the normal Chogoria route at an altitude of about 4,100m. Breathe taking views over the Gorges Valley and back over towards Ithanguni and the Northern Moorlands. Lunch will be served here, before continuing for a further hour to the Mintos Hut area at 4200m and our night’s rest.

In the Afternoon is spent relaxing at camp, though a 10-minute walk to visit Hall Tarns & the “Temple” is well worth the effort. This is a 150 meters vertical cliff that gets its name from the position visitors often adopt when peering over the edge – they look as if they are praying. After the walk, we will go back to the camp to relax ready for early night attempting the summit the next day.

Take a moment to enjoy the views, beyond the horizon and have a moment for yourself to reflect on how the journey has been before starting the journey to descend.
