Mt. Kenya

Mt. Kenya

Mt. Kenya stands in the central Kenyan highlands and is the second highest mountain in Africa. Known as ‘Kirinyaga’, which translates to ‘God’s resting place’ by the locals. Its series of snow-capped peaks irresistibly draws visitors with the promise of a great hiking experience. Sitting majestically on the equator, Mt Kenya is said to have one of the most impressive landscapes in East Africa.

The 5,199metres Batian summit is a difficult technical climb but the Nelion (5,188m) and Lenana (4,985m) peaks present a good challenge for any fit trekker. A trek up Mt. Kenya not only offers one of Africa’s finest mountain climbing experiences but is also an ideal preparation for a Mt. Kilimanjaro climb.
