Marvel at the sight of equatorial snow as you hike Mount Kenya, the highest mountain in Kenya and a World Heritage Site. A ragged series of peaks marks this extinct volcano, which rises in 5,199 m (17,057 ft) of awe-inspiring scenery revered by locals. The sacred mountain features a number of trails of varying difficulty and a variety of terrains, from rivers with waterfalls to forests and high-altitude glaciers. Lying within a biosphere reserve, the area supports abundant wildlife, including tree hyraxes, antelopes and various monkeys, plus common duikers at higher altitudes. Guides and porters will assist you and estimate your skill and stamina. Discover how to plan a Mount Kenya National Park trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

It was a breathtaking fantastic mountain!! If you are travelling Kenya, it's a must visit place. I loved it very much although it was scary and hard to climb to the peak point!
For sure this was an experience of a lifetime. I went on a solo trek up Naro Moru to Point Lenana and had the most amazing trek ever. There are different ways up the mountain but this one is the most direct. I've done both Mt Kenya and Kilimanjaro. I'd definitely prefer Mt Kenya for a trek; its way more beautiful and undamaged by tourists. Its crazy cold and windy up there. Take your time walking up considering it's easy to get altitude sickness. Organise your trek with a reputed company. It's easy to pay cheaper rates but you might suffer with bad guides and porters.
