About Mount Kenya,  Hiking, Climbing, Trekking

To the ancient Kikuyu and Kamba tribe members viewing Mount Kenya from a distance, the ricks and glaciers that form the peaks, resembled the black and white plumage of a male ostrich. The kikuyu named the mountain “Kirinyaga” that means “the area of the ostrich”. The Kamba people have a slightly different accent and pronounce Kirinyaga as “Kiinyaa”.

As the Kamba were the first people the European explorers encountered, their version became the one used by the early explorers and so the mountain became Mount Kenya. The country was later named after the mountain. Mount Kenya is the highest mountain in Kenya and the second highest in Africa after Kilimanjaro. The twin summits Batian and Nelion requires technical climbing on rock or ice, while point Lenana, the third highest peak standing at 4985 meters is reached by mountain hikers quite easily.

At this high elevation Mount Kenya climbing enthusiasts have a fine view of the scenery of forest moorland and the sight of glaciers at the equator is quite spectacular. As you trek on Mount Kenya you will meet with colobus monkey, elephant or buffalo. This walk on Mount Kenya takes you up the mountain via the Sirimoni route with unforgettable scenes of the diverse vegetation. You will also touch ice and snow on the equator!
