Additional Information

The majestic triple peaks of Mt Kenya are a sight to behold. Following less used routes, we use the Burguret Route and Sirimon Trail to ascend and descend, passing spectacular alpine moorland, forests, glaciers and tarns. Our goal is Point Lenana, at 4985m, the second highest trekking peak in Africa. Snow-capped for much of the year, it is arguably a more beautiful mountain than neighbouring Kilimanjaro. We add an acclimatisation day to the trek as we pass the technical peaks of Batian (5199m) and Nelion (5188m).
