Mount Longonot is a stratovolcano
found to the southeast of
Lake Naivasha, a freshwater
lake in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya.
The mountain is believed to have last erupted in the
1860's. Its name is gotten from the Maasai
word Oloonong'ot, signifying mountain of many peaks.
Mount Longonot is
secured by Kenya Wildlife Service as a major part of
Mount Longonot National Park. A 3.1 km trail keeps
running from the recreation center passageway up to the
hole edge, and proceeds in a 7.2 km circle surrounding
the hole. The entire visit (entryway around the crater
rim) of 13.5 km takes around 4–5 hours taking into
consideration essential rest breaks - parts of the trail
are vigorously dissolved and extremely steep.
The park gate is at around 2150 m asl and the crest at
2780 m asl yet following the rugged edge includes
significantly more than the 630 m vertical distinction.

Sirimon route is one of the least used
Mount Kenya climbing routes
featuring the a more gradual ascent profile offering the best acclimatisation possibilities. It passes through striking
Yellowwood forests in the lower stretches, abundant wildlife and
stunning alpine scenery higher up. From the head of Mackinder's
Valley past Simba Col, Point Lenana at 4985m is reached.

Lenana Peak making it the most popular of all the main trekking
routes. It is not a scenic route as compared to others and not
suited for acclimatization due to its rapid ascent, unsuitable
for climbers and hikers wishing to acclimatise gradually. It
features the "Vertical Bog" which is a steep marsh of wet
moorland which is particularly unpleasant and strenuous
especially after rains.

Kenya climbing routes. The trail passes the captivating Hall
Tarns looking down into the remarkable Gorges Valley and the
stunning Lake Michaelson.
