  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 vehicles, 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 the Narumoru route, and Chogoria town in Meru for the 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 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. NB: All Safari prices and local payments are subject to change. look at our selected Epic Active Mountain Adventure Travel Video!

Welcome to YHA-Kenya Travel Tours & Safaris - Climbing Mount Kenya Adventure Activities.

Mount Kenya Climbing.

Mt. Kenya is a dome-shaped central volcano. It is the largest mountain in Kenya. Ten glaciers cover the volcano’s 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 Mount Kenya is a spectacular walk up the beautiful Sirimon valley away from the main tourist route on Climbing Mount Kenya Expeditions. 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 Mount Kenya is necessary to reach Point Lenana, the "walking summit" at 16,400 ft. Descending to the base we will relax in a lodge ending your mount Kenya expeditions before returning to Nairobi.

Legendary Story About Mount Kenya.

The Story behind Mount Kenya with the Kikuyu people (Tribe) who surround and live within the parameters of the Mountain (also called Kikuyu ) or Agikuyu ~ Kikuyu people Batian and Nelion in the background cropped. Several ethnic groups that live around Mount Kenya believe the mountain is sacred. They used to build their houses facing the mountain, with the doors on the side nearest to it.The Gikuyu people live on the southern and western sides of the mountain. They are agriculturalists and make use of the highly fertile volcanic soil on the lower slopes.  The Gikuyu people believe that God, ''Ngai'' or ''Mwene Nyaga'', lived on Mount Kenya when he came down from the sky. They believe that the mountain is Ngai's throne on earth. It is the place where Gikuyu the father of the tribe, used to meet with God. Thus according to the Kikuyu records, Gikuyu is the first person on Earth to ascend the mountain. 'Mwene Nyaga' in Gikuyu language can also translate as the "Owner of Snow" where 'Mwene' translates to 'owner', and 'Nyaga' to snow.'Nyaga' can also translate to 'Ostrich'. Kikuyus used to build their houses with doors facing the mountain.  The Kikuyu name for Mount Kenya is ''K?r? Nyaga'' (Kirinyaga), which literally translates to 'God's Resting Place' or 'Where God Lives' in this case referring to Mwene Nyaga.

Epic 5 Days Budget Activity Adventure Trekking Safari Mount Kenya Climbing Ascend Via Sirimon Route out Sirimon 
This is our shortest adventure trekking Mount Kenya expeditions. 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 acclimatization 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.

Tour Itinerary 4.

Epic 5 Days Climbing Mount Kenya Active Adventure Tours Chogoria out Chogoria.

This itinerary is for the ascent of Pt Lenana, the third peak of Mt Kenya, at an altitude of 4985 meters. This is not a technical climb, but a hike. Anyone with a reasonable level of fitness should be more than capable of completing the trek provided they approach it in a sensible manner. The ascent is via the Chogoria Route, on the little-used east side of the mountain.

Day 1Start Active Adventure Trekking Mount Kenya Tour.

Pick up from the hotel at about 0800. It's then about 3 1/2 hours from Nairobi to where we collect the porters and guides (as required). Into the Mt. Kenya forest for the 22 km drive to the Park Gate at 2,850m. Dependent on road conditions, these 22 km have been known to take all afternoon to do and in really wet conditions it is possible that the top-four or five km may be impassable. Night, dependent on clients wishes, at the Meru Mt. Kenya Banda's or at road head a further 7 km from the Park Gate.

Day 2 Prepare Active Adventure Trekking Mount Kenya Tour.

After breakfast and sorting of porter loads, we set off up the mountain at a nice and easy pace. A slightly longer walk via Lake Ellis gives scenic views of Mugi, Ithunguni, and the Giants BilliardsTable, whilst if we follow the river near road head, upstream for about 3 km, the foreground scenery and flora is particularly beautiful. Lunch by the stream banks then it's time to cut up the left-hand hillside to our camp at about 3,600m, well away from any of the more "touristy" areas.

Day 3 Moorland Zone Active Adventure Trekking Mount Kenya Tour.

From our campsite, we continue to move up through the moorland zone. As this area of the mountain is still off the beaten track, there are no paths to follow, and on each trip, we vary the area we walk across. After about an hour, traverse left and join a ridge (slight path to follow) and join the normal Chogoria route to Minto's Hut after about 4-hour walking. Lunch at a small stream crossing then 45 min onto a camp near Minto's Hut and next to one of the turns. Very short afternoon walk over to superb views across to "The Temple" and down to Lake Michaelson.

Day 4: Mintos Active Adventure Trekking Mount Kenya Tour.

After pre-dawn breakfast leaves Mintos Hut for the summit passing near the Simba Tarn and Harris to Point Lenana which is approximately 4 - 5 hours. After the sunrise at 6.30 and nice views of Kilimanjaro and the Coast, line descends back to Mintos for full breakfast and thereafter descend to Meru Mount Kenya Lodge(Bandas) having our lunch at the Roadhead. Dinner and overnight at the Bandas.

Day 5: Descend Summit Active Adventure Trekking Mount Kenya Tour. 

After breakfast walk for 15km downhill through the dense rain and bamboo forests to connect the 4WD jeep to Chogoria Town. Then after lunch at Chogoria drive back to Nairobi for your next destination.
