MOUNT KENYA CLIMBING

Mt. Kenya itinerary details

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.

Interesting combination of the two most scenic routes on Mount Kenya, from the lush green forests and U-shaped valleys of Sirimon to the unique features of the temple, mushroom rocks and the Gorges Valley on the Chogoria side.

There is also a marked contrast in micro-climatic conditions, Chogoria being wetter and more moist than Sirimon. This itinerary includes mandatory camping at Mintos on Day 3 but less preffered the other nights can be in the huts that exist along the route.
