Mount Kenya and around

The second tallest mountain in Africa, Mount Kenya is about 150 km northeast of Nairobi and is protected in the Mount Kenya National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's a stand-alone extinct volcano and the fertile soil on its lower slopes supports the market towns on the road that circles the mountain. Although it's not as popular a climb as Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, trekkers will be well rewarded with the climb up through montane forest and giant bamboo and lobelia to the snow line.
