Discover Mount Kenya

Mount Kenya is the second highest summit in Africa after the Kilimanjaro, topping 17,053 ft. The three highest peaks are named after old Masai chiefs: Mbatiany, Olonana and Nelieng (the last two are Mbatiany's sons). A hike up Mount Kenya is certainly one of the most beautiful hikes you could do in this wonderful country. While there are three paths leading to the mountain, the Chogonia path is the quickest and most spectacular. The Naro Monu route is the most famous but it is also an easier hike. Finally, the Sirimon route is the road less travelled.
