Mount Kenya Trekking Tours & Routes

At 5,199 m, Mount Kenya is the second highest peak in africa. It is an ancient extinct volcano, during whose period of activity (3.1–2.6 million years ago), is thought to have risen to 6,500 m. There are 12 remnant glaciers on mount Kenya, all receding rapidly, and four secondary peaks that sit at the head of the U-shaped glacial valleys. With it's rugged glacier-clad summits and forested middle slopes, Mount Kenya trekking tours offers one of the most impressive landscapes in East Africa. The evolution and ecology of its afro-alpine flora also provide an outstanding example of ecological processes. There are three main routes, which penetrate the forest and the moorland. The routes are Naromoru, Sirimon and Chogoria and each of which has something different to offer. Naromoru is the fastest route to point Lenana but not as scenic as Sirimon route and Chogoria route. Mount Kenya climbing tour consist 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.
