This is a very exciting route to use for the climb to Mt.Kenya. Chogoria is a very agricultural town that is a source to several permanent rivers. The longest of the routes, it also has the longest natural vegetation cover and very scenic gorges. It offers good camping sites as well lakes that are very conducive for fishing enthusiaMt sts.
