Mt. Kenya Climbing

MOUNT KENYA NATURAL HISTORY

Phistins Tours and Travel Mountain Climbing

Phistins Tours and Travel Mountain Climbing

Mount Kenya is Africa’s second highest mountain at 5,199m and the highest of all Kenya Mountains. Mount Kenya trek is roughly circular, about 60km across at the 200mm contour, where the steep font hills rise out of the gentler slopes of the centered highlands of Mount Kenya. At the centre of the massif, the main peaks rise sharply from around 4,500m to the main summit of Batian 5,199m, Nelion 5,188m and point Lenana 4,985m. Other major summits on the mountain include Point Piggott 4,957m, Point Dutton 4,885 and Point John 4,883m. Of the three main peaks (Batian, Lenana and Nelion), only point Lenana can be reached by trekkers and the other two being only for technical climbers.
After the Mount Kenya cultivated farmlands on the lower slopes the trails pass through the rain forest, rich in trees of many species but noticeably camphors, then onto a bamboo zone growing to heights of more than 12m or more up through open moor land before reaching the moonscape of higher slopes. The Mount Kenya forests are rich in wildlife including elephant, buffalo and monkeys with even the moor lands offering a long list of mammals including the rock hyrax, the nearest living relative of the elephant.

Mt. Kenya hiking is an ancient volcanic mountain much older than Mt. Kilimanjaro. It’s believed to have once reached well above 600m. What is left today is volcanic plug which erosion has fashioned into the complex jagged outline of the central peaks.

When to Trek Mount Kenya & Climb Mt Kenya
Although, Mount Kenya can be climbed all year round, it’s safest to climb Mt. Kenya during the dry seasons: January-February and August to September off the most reliably fine weather. The main Mount Kenya climbing routes are likely to be more crowded at this time of the year. If you favor complete solitude over the sunny skies, try going slightly off the peak season. It’s best to avoid the two rainy seasons from mid March until June and from late October to the end of December.

Mount Kenya climbing Routes/Itineraries:
There are three main Mt Kenya trekking routes, which penetrate the forest and the moorland. The Mount Kenya Climbing routes are Naromoru Route trek, Sirimon Route hiking and Chogoria Route walking and each of which has something different to offer. Mount Kenya Naromoru Route is the fastest route to point Lenana but not as scenic as the other two. Mt Kenya Trekking through Chogoria Route hike is the most scenic and Mt Kenya hiking Sirimon Route the most interesting because it is on the drier side of Mount Mount Kenya.
Note: The normal pattern of weather on Mount Kenya climbing is for clear mornings with mist closing in from 10:00am although this can clear by evening. Therefore, early morning starts are the order of the day with a 2am start for the final ascent to point Lenana at Mount Kenya, if you want to catch the sunrise.
