Mt.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.
Mt. Kenya is located 180km north of Nairobi within the Mount Kenya National park. The park protected area 3200m above sea level and was established in 1949 and covers an area of 715 sq. km. The mountain comprised of 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 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.
Climb Mount Kenya by Choosing between Sirimon-Chogoria and Naro Moru Routes.
Mt. Kenya National Park.
Mount Kenya, at an altitude of 5199 [17058ft] 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.
Sirimon down Sirimon Route 4 days : A more gradual trek to the summit, traversing areas of rich forest cover before emerging into the sprawling moorlands. This hike is usually rated as the easiest among the short trips and is quite popular with persons attempting to reach an altitude exceeding 4000m for the first time. It is a good choice for large trekking groups as it follows the same trail up and down, making it convenient for those who are unable to reach the summit to stay behind at lower camps to wait for the rest of the group to complete the trip then descend together. Unless preferred, camping is not necessary as accommodation is available in a lodge and mountain huts throughout the trip.
Mount Kenya Climb Sirimon down Chogoria route 5 days : On this Mount kenya climbing experience, you ascend via the dry and little used sirimon trail and descend on the scenic chogoria trail. You reach point lenana (4985 m), the highest point accessible to walkers, and return to base. Mount kenya is africa's second highest mountain. Above the habitable altitude, you find a rainforest zone, abundant with many tree species and wildlife too. Further up is open moorland, and beyond is the snow line where vegetation is sparse. Finding snow on the equator was a great surprise for the first Europeans to get to east africa.
Sirimon down Narumoru 7 days : The naro moru route is the fastest and therefore also the most popular route onto the mountain, being used by many of the tour and outfitting companies guiding clients up to point lenana.
