About Mountain Kenya
Mountain Kenya is the second highest mountain in Africa and is found on the eastern province of the country. The mountain has three peaks with the highest being the Batian peak 5119m, Nelion peak 5188 m and Lenana peak 4985 meters. There are different routes that lead to the mountain and all these reward you with the glacier top at the top of the mountain.
The hike up the mountain takes roughly four days but it all depends on the trekking route that you use. The Sirimon route is the most popular and it takes two days for all those who are in a hurry and the Burguret route takes three days although this is not normally used by trekkers and these two routes are normally used when one is ascending the mountain.
The descending routes are the Chogoria route which takes three days for one to descend and Naro Moru route which takes two days while one is descending. The trek up the mountain is not for the faint hearted but you will enjoy the climb as you will be able to see the different animals and birds and the final reward of the glacier when you reach the summit.
