There are many things to consider before your Mount Kenya Trekking expedition. Tips that should guide you before getting out to the outdoors!

  1. Routes

Now that you have read widely about Mount Kenya trekking, you now need to narrow down on the best route for you. One that you will enjoy at your own pace without being rushed or slowed down. Keep in mind, different route require different expertise. For example, the Up Sirimon – Down Sirimon is the easiest route while trekking Mount Kenya.

  1. Proper Clothing/ gear

The gear determine the success rate! So always carry a change of clothes which can help in the rain and as an extra layer on top, an extra pair of socks and a windcheater/poncho to shield in case of rains. Here is a Do’s and Don’t s guide:

  • Avoid cotton clothing as it does not dry and does not keep warm in the rains. Go for wool or fleece instead.
  • Never wear cotton socks either. Thick synthetic or woolen socks will help prevent blisters when wet or sweaty.
  • Wear a cap/hat to protect from the sun and keep you warm in the cold.
  • Wear comfortable hard-soled trekking/walking shoes for off-road.  Try those shoes with the socks you’ll wear while buying. Best trekking shoes are the ones that keep your ankles stable. Break those shoes in if they are new so shoe bites don’t ruin your trek.  Sneakers are not recommended.

  1. How to Pack

Depending on how long and where you are going, the best way is to pack heavy stuff like the medical kit or change of clothes at the bottom, food in the middle and quick energy bites and water at the top.

Luckily, our porters will carry your stuff, that will weigh maximum 15kgs. As for water, you will carry for the first day and do refills on the mountain. The easiest way is to bring water purifying tablets. Tablets will save you weight compared to most filtering systems, and are less time consuming to use.
