Mt.Kenya is Africa's second highest mountain after Kilimanjaro. This extinct volcano is estimated to be 2.5 million years old. Time has taken its toll on the former, reducing the peak from 6500m to 5199 m today, while nature's untiring eroding agents long ago eroded the crater.
Mt. Kenya is located 180km north of Nairobi within the Mount Kenya National park. The park protected area 3200m above sea level and was established in 1949 and covers an area of 715 sq km. The mountain comprised of three main zones: - the rocky peak zone, the afro-alpine moorland with it's scattering of giant vegetation and the extensive tower slope covered with mountain forest and a bamboo there are over 81plant species. Any fit and prepared person can reach point Lenana, the so-called trekker's peak; the summit has the twin peaks of 5199m Batian and Nelion and is considered more technically challenging than the higher Mt Kilimanjaro at 5894m.
Choose between Sirimon-Chogoria and Naro Moru Routes.
Mt. Kenya National Park.
Mount Kenya, at an altitude of 5199 {17058ft} the country's highest mountain, has its higher slope permanently covered in snow and ice, even though it sits astride the equator.

The mountain consists of three peaks the Batian {the highest} Nelion and Lenana. Of these peaks, the original hard center core is all that remains; the bulk of the volcano has been eroded away with time.
