Mount Kenya

Kenya’s highest mountain and Africa’s second largest after Mount Kilimanjaro, Mt Kenya is definitely the destination for mountain climber tourists. The mountain has snow caps with three major peaks and is surrounded by the Mount Kenya national park which has a great array of amazing animals and awesome opportunities to observe game up close. There is also a wide variety of unique birds. Tourists can take walks in the surrounding moor lands interacting with the local population, enjoying the scenic views as well as attempt to climb to one of the three major peaks of the mountain.

The mountain’s ragged series of peaks are crowned with snow, and its slopes are thick with forest. It is best seen at dawn, when the days early light silhouettes its impressive summit high over the surrounding plains.

Mount Kenya’s 5199 metre summit is a difficult technical climb, the lesser peak of Point Lenana (4985m) can be easily reached by every eager climber. The trek could take between 3 and 5 days, through a fascinating world of forests, wildlife, unique montane vegetation including podocarpus and grounsel, and finally one of the worlds rarest sights, equatorial snow. For those who don’t want to climb the Mountain the cool highlands that surround its base are well worth a visit.
