Rongai Route day 1: Rongai Gate (1800 m) – First Cave Camp (2600 m)
Today, your guide will pick you up at your hotel and drive you to the Rongai Gate in about 2 hours. You then start this exciting adventure ascending through beautiful lush forests listening to varied animal noises. After a lunch break, you continue until the first camp on the Rongai route, which is on the less forested north side of the mountain. This route is quieter and allows viewing of a lot of wildlife.
