Mount Kenya National Park

Mount Kenya National Park

Mountain Rivers, forest, moorland rock and ice and crowned by glittering twin peaks of Batian and Nelion. Mt Kenya National Park is covering 2800 sq km and is 175 km north east of Nairobi. It offers a landscape of Mountain Rivers, forest, moorland rock and ice and crowned by glittering twin peaks of Batian and Nelion.

Since Mt Kenya has mountain geography, the climate and weather varies with altitude. At high altitudes it is freezing cold, misty and windy. The vegetation is mainly alpine and sub-alpine flora, bamboo forests, moorland and tundra. The vegetation changes notably as you ascend because of the variations in temperatures.

While the 5199 metre summit is a difficult technical climb, the lesser peak Point Lenana (4985m) can be easily reached by any fit trekker. This trek takes between 3 and 5 days, through a fascinating world of forests, wildlife, unique montane vegetation including podocarpus and grounsel, and finally one of the world’s rarest sights, equatorial snow.

An attraction at the extinct volcanic Mountain is the massive circular volcanic cone estimated at 70 km in diameter. The mountain is permanently crowned with a glacier at the peak known as Lewis Glacier. This is amazing because the line of the equator crosses Kenya and is assumed hottest area with Mt Kenya only 16km south of the equator.
