5 Days Mount Kenya Climbing Naromoru out Naromoru Route

PDFPrintE-mail

Naro Moru route is the quickest way to the base of the mountain and Pt. Lenana. It is also one of the steepest routes and extra care should be taken here to avoid problems with AMS. Walking up towards Mackinders Camp through the Teleki Valley offers superb views of the peaks of Batian and Nelion. A steep section known as the "vertical bog" is crossed around midwau to Mackinders Hut and a stopover here is almost compulsory. The accomodations are good with bunkhouses at Met Station and Mackinder's Camp.
