Mount Kenya Climb
Mt. Kenya is a dome-shaped central volcano. It is the largest mountain in Kenya. Ten glaciers cover the volcanos peaks. The original crater on Mt. Kenya was over 20,000 ft (6100 m) high but has been heavily eroded. Most of this erosion occurred during two periods when glaciers carved much of the top of the volcano. These periods wore down the ring-like plug forming the top of Mt Kenya. In fact, almost 35% of the volcano has been worn away.
Climbing Mt Kenya is a spectacular walk up the beautiful Sirimon valley away from the main tourist route on Mount Kenya. The trek passes through a diverse range of vegetation and climate zones, from dense forest to tropical cactus plants to snow covered peaks within a relatively short distance. No technical climbing is necessary to reach Point Lenana, the “walking summit” at 16,400 ft. Descending to the base we will relax in a lodge before returning to NairobiImage

Of the Mt Kenya three main peaks (Batian, Lenana and Nelion), only point Lenana can be reached by trekkers and the other two being only for technical climbers. Mount Kenya Hiking, Mt Kenya Trekking, Mount Kenya Walking, Mt Kenya trek, Mt Kenya hike, Mount Kenya, Mt Kenya Climbing Mt Kenya, Climb Mt Kenya Climb Mt Kenya..
