This is undoubtedly one of the most scenic areas of the mountain; its 1,000 vertical cliffs, virgin valleys and cascading waterfalls make it one of the most spectacular trekked areas in Kenya. Night camped at Hall Tarns (4,300m).

Day 5: Hall Tarns
Descend to Lake Michaelson, in the depth of the Gorges Valley. See the incredible cave formation known as The Temple. Walk down the valley to Vivienne Falls (named after the famous author of Speak to the Earth). Return to camp in the afternoon. Night spent camping at Hall Tarns (4,300m).

Day 6: Teleki
Get off early for a four-hour stiff and slow ascent to Pt Lenana which stands at 4,985m to get there just before sunrise. Descend to Teleki Valley via the Austrian Hut and proceed to spend the night in Teleki Lodge’s bandas at 4,150m.

Day 7: Base
Descend to Met Station; our vehicles will be waiting to transfer you to lodge for a well-earned rest.
