Kenya Popular Mountain Trekkings

Mount Kenya is Africa’s second highest mountain, rising to 5,199 meters above sea level. The scenery surrounding this designated World Heritage Site is breathtaking. It is a pristine wilderness with lakes, tarns, glaciers, dense forest, mineral springs, and a selection of rare and endangered species of animals, high altitude adapted plains game, and unique montane and alpine vegetation. Visitors can enjoy mountain climbing, camping, and caving with the mountain’s rugged glacier-clad peaks providing the perfect backdrop. The three highest peaks of Mount Kenya are Batian (5,199 m / 17,057 ft), Nelion (5,188m / 17,021 ft) and Point Lenana (4,985 m / 16,355 ft). Ascending Batian or Nelion requires skilled mountaineering – rock climbing and use of ropes. Tarns and alpine meadows: exotic, equatorial, high-altitude vegetation; sunbirds, hyrax, and soaring eagles make the walk around the peaks one of the most beautiful expeditions in the East African mountains.

The high peaks of the mountain are rocky and dramatic, and the mountain features multiple glaciers and many deep valleys. The whole mountain is a national park too, so if you’re lucky, you may even see wildlife like elephants and other large mammals on the lower-elevation trails. In other words, it’s a great place for photography!
