Mt. Kenya hosts magnificent cliffs and glaciers that protect the highest peaks. Highest peaks here are Batian at 5199 m/17057 ft, Nelion at 5188 m/17021 ft and Point Lenana at 4985 m/16355 ft. Possibility to hike Mt. Kenya is all year round, however, it gets extremely difficult to hike the mountain during the rainy season.
Rainy seasons here run from mid June to October. Hikers are offered several route options which normally take between 4-7 days.
Apart from the stunning mountain scenery, Mt. Kenya boasts diverse wildlife and flora. Hikers have the option to stay in designated camps or mountain hut. People need to carry their own food to the mountain that is why most hikers prefer hiking with cooks, porters and guides.
