Acclimation to Mount Kenya

Acclimation to Mount Kenya is curated to help you adapt gradually to the mountain climate and the changing difficulty of climbing mountains. Our program will acclimate hikers to rigorous high-altitude hiking, observing safety, and exhilarating ascent to Mount Kenya. You will undertake a series of progressive hikes strategically planned to help your body adjust gradually to the reduced oxygen levels at higher altitudes and develop a growing resilience while minimizing the risk and impact of severe sickness, especially on higher and top peaks. With a team of seasoned mountaineers and expert guides, we are committed to providing you with an adventure and experience.

The Hikers Arena team is passionate about mountaineering and has been on the mountains sufficiently before. We will be listening to and observing you to bring the best results out of you. We prioritize every hiker’s well-being and are safety-sensitive, providing first-aid support and constant monitoring to ensure a secure and worthy experience.

This program will be our Summer Calendar Acclimation Academy and will elevate you to Mount Kenya, beginning on May 11, 2024, and ending on July 14, 2024. Book today. Our team is ready to walk you to the mountains. We welcome you to the arena.

Readiness Checklist

✅Sit, relax, and imagine. Where your mind is, the feet will reach there.

✅Take exercises at home, near home, or on the hiking trails.

✅Hydrate often. Water is a medicine for metabolism and trustable support when acclimating.

✅Start where you are with what you have. Wear your sports shoes, hike with them where friendly, understand why hiking boots are important, and plan to buy one. This is where it starts.

✅Stock the rest of the hiking gear slowly. By the arrival of the event, you will have all the necessary hiking gear.

✅Keep in touch. We are here to support you.

✅Maintain a positive spirit. Unlearn from what you heard about hiking.

✅Follow our guides. We have been there before and know what is recommended.
