Hiking through Mount Kenya
Standing at 5,199 M, Mount Kenya is the second tallest mountain in Africa and a World Heritage Site. Surrounded by pristine wilderness with lakes, tarns, glaciers, dense forest, mineral springs and a selection of rare and endangered species, a hike of the park and the hills of Mt. Kenya is nothing short of magical.
Additionally, the mountain’s high rugged glacier-clad peaks offer the perfect backdrop for any photography enthusiast.
How to get to the Mt. Kenya park
The park is accessible via the Nanyuki-Isiolo road through the Sirimon Track or Nyeri-Nanyuki road near Naro Moru. The park is also reachable via Chogoria on the Embu - Meru road, about 150km north of Nairobi.
If you intend to get there via air, the closest airstrip is at Nanyuki.
