Reach the second Highest Peak in Africa after Kilimanjaro

Days Mount Kenya Sirimon gate Down Chogoria 5

Description

Mount Kenya is the less climbed cousin of Mount Kilimanjaro nearby in Tanzania; however, many people prefer the wilderness, abundant wildlife and stunning mountain lakes that you find on Mount Kenya.

Point Lenana at 4985m metres is a feasible trekking peak and also currently the world highest via ferrata summit route, which adds to the challenge and enjoyment. The panoramic views of the jagged volcanic peaks, wide valleys and surrounding savannah makes a trek on this mountain a thoroughly enjoyable African experience.
