We pick you up at your accommodation in Nairobi (or other location) and then drive you to Mount Kenya Leisure Lodge, which normally takes 4 hrs drive.
The next day we begin by sorting out climbing gear and other personal preparations for the climb ahead. In the afternoon, we proceed to the park gate accompanied by knowledgeable guides where we register. From here you may walk or you can be driven up to the Met Station (10,000ft). Check in at the Log Cabins at the Met Station. Spend the rest of the afternoon on short hikes designed to get you to acclimatize to this altitude in preparation for the start of the challenging climb the following day. Dinner and overnight at a Cabin log at the Met Station.
After an early breakfast, we then begin the hike through the beautiful rainforest. We hike and get into a steep bog and walk through Teleki valley, named after the Hungarian explorer Samuel Teleki, where there is a spectacular view of the main peaks. After a 6-7 hour hike, we arrive at Mackinders camp (4200 m = 14000 ft) for your well-deserved rest, dinner and overnight.
In order to summit point Lenana (4985 m = 16355 ft) in time for sunrise, we get up at 2-3 am. Then we walk for 5 km through a long rock and summit at dawn. You will be treated to an incredible view of beautiful peaks, tarn lakes, glaciers and valleys. On successfully attaining the summit, you begin your descent back to the base station from where you are driven back to the Mount Kenya Leisure Lodge.
