About Sirimon Route
A trek through Sirimon Route is like no other. It providers trekkers the opportunity of experiencing an easier and shorter trek than Naromoru while still experiencing all the beauty of the surroundings as they pass through the drier side of the mountain. The route begins in the northwest and passes through the forest to reach the summit area. There is adequate access to the area and bunk housing facilities are best on this side of the mountain.
