An overview of Mount Kenya. 

 Mount Kenya is Africa’s second-highest mountain after Kilimanjaro. This extinct volcano is estimated to be 2.5 million years old. Time has taken its toll on the former, reducing the peak from 6500m to 5199 m today, while nature’s untiring eroding agents long ago eroded the crater. Mount Kenya, at an altitude of 5199 [17058ft] is the country's highest mountain, has its higher slope permanently covered in snow and ice, even though it sits astride the equator.

The National Park comprises the mountain above the 320m [10,500ft] contour plus two salient astride the Naro Moru and the Sirimon routes.

The mountain consists of three peaks the Batian [the highest] Nelion and Lenana. Of these peaks, the original hard center core is all that remains; the bulk of the volcano has been eroded away with time.

Mount Kenya is located about 200km north of Nairobi within the Mount Kenya National Park.

It is very easy to get to Mount Kenya for an adventure hike activity by road in various travel options namely public transport from Nairobi or other towns using minibusses, privately hired vehicle, Taxi or private means.

These options will lead you to towns and trekking routes close to the mountain and mostly on dirt roads. The route town options are Nanyuki town for the Sirimon route, Naro Moru town for Narumoru route and Chogoria town in Meru for Chogoria route.

The park protected an area of 3200m above sea level was established in 1949 and covers an area of 715 sqm. Km. The mountain comprises three main zones: - the rocky peak zone, the afro-alpine moorland with its scattering of giant vegetation and the extensive tower slope covered with mountain forest and a bamboo there are over 81plant species. Any fit and a prepared person can reach point Lenana, the so-called trekker’s peak; the summit has the twin peaks of 5199m Batian and Nelion and is considered more technically challenging than the higher Mt Kilimanjaro at 5894m.  Mount Kenya climbing expedition 

 

Mount Kenya National Park.

Mount Kenya, at an altitude of 5199 [17058ft] is the country's highest mountain, has its higher slope permanently covered in snow and ice, even though it sits astride the equator.

The National park comprises the mountain above the 320m [10,500ft] contour plus two salient astride the Naro moru and the Sirimon routes.

The mountain consists of three peaks the Batian [the highest] Nelion and Lenana. Of these peaks, the original hard centre core is all that remains; the bulk of the volcano has been eroded away with time.

 Mount Kenya climbing routes.

The Naro Moru Route

The Naro Moru route is the easiest and most  fastest and it is also the most popular route preferred by many onto the mountain, it is commonly used by many hikers ,schools, scout groups , tour companies and private guides and potters leading clients up to Point Lenana.

It is not particularly scenic and the rapid ascent profile makes it unsuitable for climbers wishing to acclimatise more gradually and sensibly.

The Naro Moru route also features the steep quagmire of wet moorland that is extremely taxing and unpleasant after rains.

The final climb up to the Austrian Hut tackles a long, loose and uncompromising scree slope up the side of the Teleki Valley.

Basically, you don't want to do this route unless you're in a hurry to bag Point Lenana on a quick 3-day programme.

Descending via the Naro Moru route is fine though.

The Sirimon Route.

The Sirimon route is the least used by mountain climbers of the three main routes, but it features the most gradual ascent profile and best for acclimatisation options.

The route passes through very impressive Yellowwood forests in the lower reaches and features abundant wildlife and beautiful alpine scenery higher up.

The Austrian Hut and Point Lenana are reached from the head of Mackinder's Valley via Simba Col.

The Chogoria Route

Climbing from the Chogoria route is said to be the most scenic and interesting of the three main routes on the mountain.

The route passes the enchanting Hall Tarns and looks down sheer cliffs into the spectacular Gorges Valley and onto the beautiful Lake Michaelson.

The Austrian Hut is reached via Tooth Col at the head of the valley.
