Hello everyone,

I plan to climb Mount Kenya in early September, and then to encrypt to Ethiopia to explore the danakil desert (Danakil Depression).

If anyone wants to join, I definitely would love.

Feel free to contact us here at the site,

Now that I'm back from the Trek, I can share with you some insights.

  1. The track I started and ended at the same gate: sirimon gate (Sirimon). The first night I spent on Old New 3,300-meter height.
  2. The second and third night spent at Shipton, 4,200. The problem is not the time for acclimatization (days rose from sea level to $ 4,200), so I had to take pills against altitude sickness.
  3. On the third day (which was used on Shipton) climbed to beautiful Lake at an altitude of 4,500 meters.
  4. The ascent to the peak Lenana did at night. Depart at 3:00 am and 6:30 in the Summit area. After their brief Summit during which was experiencing one of the most beautiful sunrises I ever see, you can go back to the gate and then again Shipton sirimon gate or Chogoria.
  5. The fourth night I passed Old Moses hut naughty, then the next day I left the sirimon gate to Nairobi.
  6. Overall the situation very well. There are toilets in the cabins with toilets, kitchens at a reasonable level, certainly in the first cabin you can buy beer or soft drinks.
  7. There's plenty of water everywhere, but not potable. Should boil or purify (or both).
  8. The trails are in good condition, but does not check many options so that the I'm ordering you!. There are quite a few tourists and guides, so always ask.
  9. To get to the cabin (Shipton) not difficult at all, but the climb to the Summit certainly requires an effort: some free, and height.
  10. Costs: admission to three to five days will cost $ 210. Nairobi shuttle sirimon gate, three large meals and daily afternoon tea, accommodation, cabins, kitchen and suffered five days are $ 300-$ 400 area. Camping discount the cost by $ 20 per night.
  11. Weather: very cold up there, even inside. It is strongly recommended to get the clothing and equipment is capable of dealing with very low temperatures. Almost no rain has fallen, but should be ready for the rain mode. Most of the rain began in the afternoon.
  12. In: lots of beautiful birds, below 3,000 metres you can see baboons, colobus monkeys, elephants and Waterbucks even (we only saw evidence, not just elephants). Higher saw evidence of jackals, hyenas and even Jaguars.
  13. Vegetation: large diversity there, but seeing all the vegetation is mostly above 3,000 meters: Red Hot Poker, Giant Lolibela, etc.
  14. Tips: accepted something like us $ 10 to us $ 15 per day, suffering kitchen per day and $ 20 per guide per day.

Overall this is not a difficult trek to settle him, and certainly not difficult (although definitely not easy!). Directory: name, and omboko (Wamboko Shem). Email: screetrekkers1@gmail.com or call 254-722-949-433 +

Bill, thank you very much. Glad you have a rewarding experience.

You have a few questions:

On the orientation issue relates, we can ask, and you mentioned a guide – can I conclude that it is possible and permitted to travel without a guide?
Ditto about the kitchen (it takes five food only)? And suffering?
I know the guys there who need income, and it's definitely very worth consideration, but wanted to know if there is a viable option and to travel alone.
Mentioned camping-whether the local tent or tent it brings the traveler? Whether such alternative title and possible?

Thank you very much.

Hi there,

Although there is no obligation to hire a guide, but (as noted) locals of course prefer to hire an entire team (Guide, Cook and Porter). There were two tourists who came with cooking equipment, food for five days and sleeping equipment and services from anyone drunk. They were required only to pay for the park entrance ($210).

I araithi that offer tent cabins for rent, should bring a tent (or rent one before you get to the reserve). Animniach can be rented in Nairobi or naniuki, which is the nearest town. Near the targeted area, and there's even a toilet and running water. As stated in the tent saves something like $ 20 per night.

Enjoy the trip!

Noam

To double-and I climbed Mt. atzthait independent Kenya three years ago.
Both experienced travelers, and this was my third time at the Summit.

I recommend to climb a mountain with a guide, but not recommend to climb independently (and not only!)
Since this is a complex and dangerous trip from several aspects, which I think is only suitable for experienced travelers who already have accumulated mileage and high mountain treks.

To some readers that the Forum does not have the experience to understand the complexity of such a trip.
Let alone to solve problems when they arise,
So in general I recommend-directory.
