Climb Mount Kenya

Altitude 5199m, Grade 4C

Climb Africa’s Second Highest Mountain. This expedition provides the opportunity to visit one of Africa’s most beautiful countries, Kenya and to ascend Africa’s second highest peak, Mt Kenya. 

Climb Mount Kenya is a stunning and adventurous expedition to a unique land of contrasts and natural wonders.

Mt Kenya (5199m) is Africa’s second highest mountain, consisting of three summits: Point Lenana (4985m) is accessible to any strong hill walker. Batian (5199m) and Nelion (5188m) are both a challenge for the rock climber (approx Hard Severe). We offer the opportunity for clients to ascend all three summits. Everyone treks in together, but on the summit days each group can head for their separate summit with their own guide/leader. Our choice of approach route provides excellent acclimatisation; traversing Mt Kenya and linking two of its most famous trails: the Sirimon and Naru Moru. These trails offer spectacular, ever-changing scenery; vast plains bordering the Great Rift Valley, dense forest, deep gorges, waterfalls, moorland, glaciers and mountain tarns.

Client to guide ratio is 2:1

Non-climbing partners or friends can join this trip and relax at the Austrian hut while climbers ascend the peaks.

Mt Kenya can be combined with our Kilimanjaro Machame route expedition to complete an ascent of Africa’s two highest mountains.
