Mount Kenya is located on the equator. Magnificent cliffs and glaciers protect the highest peaks of Nelion (5188m) and Batian (5199m). The third highest summit - Point Lenana, (4985m) - is also glaciated but accessible to walkers. Tarns and alpine meadows; exotic, equatorial, high-altitude vegetation; sunbirds, hyrax and soaring eagles make the walk around the peaks one of the most beautiful expeditions in the East African mountains. On account of the high altitudes it is wise not to rush to the summit areas and the very shortest trip to Lenana should allow for 3 nights on the mountain. To combine this ascent with a circumnavigation of the main peaks requires at least an extra day.

Accommodation on the mountain will be in roomy double skin, dome tents. We provide a mess tent in the event of bad weather. Porters are provided to carry all communal equipment and 10kg. of your equipment. More porters could be provided on request.
Trip Details
Prices are worked out on a sliding scale depending on the group size and the length of the stay. Check the route details on our detailed information pages and look at the route map.
