Naro Moru route is the shortest and most direct route. As such it tends to be busy and popular. It’s great for the descent as it’s relatively quick and easy. The plant life on offer on the way is spectacular. However, it has sections such as the notorious Vertical Bog, which can get waterlogged. This trail can be done in a long day but it’s better across two days and one night.
The Sirimon route allows you to ascend more steadily and gives you a stunning approach to the final peak. For this track, you’ll need a minimum of two days but it’s better to take an extra day to really adjust to the altitude. This is one of the most popular routes to the summit. There are a few good things about this route, one is that it’s somewhat protected from the rainfall so the track stays drier. The other is that there are two camps along the way, Old Moses at 3300 m and Shipton’s camp 4200 m. This allows you to recharge on your way up and take the walk at your own pace.
