CLIMBING MOUNT KENYA
Hiking Mount Kenya With The Experts
Mount Kenya is Kenya’s highest mountain and the second highest mountain in Africa. The mountain stands at 5,199 m tall or 17,058 feet. Even though the mountain has for a long time been overlooked by hikers at the expense of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania which is the highest free-standing mountain in Africa, Mount Kenya has for the last few years become popular with hikers as it offers better chances of getting to the summit.
The main peaks of the mountain are Batian 5,199 m, Nelion 5,18 m, and Lenana 4,985 m which are all within reach even for the novice hikers.
