Sirimon Route - The route is usually considered one of the easier routes as it climbs relatively gradually with only a couple of steeper sections to reach the top camp. It is also currently the most popular route, though it is by no means busy
Naro Moru Route - This route used to be by far the most popular route as it is relatively short and has huts at Met Station (3050m) and MacKinders (4200m).
Chogoria Route - The route is often described as the most attractive route on Mount Kenya.
Burguret Route - It is not well used and does not have a distinct path which can be followed in the way that the others above can, neither does it have any huts or facilities.
Timau Route - Approaches from the North from near the village of Timau. It used to be a popular route for ascending in a 4x4 as it follows a meandering route through the gentler northern slopes until they steepen at around 4200m.
Kamweti Route - The Kamweti Route approaches from the south by first driving up from the village of Kutus to the Forest Castle Lodge in the forest zone
