The second highest peak in Africa, Mount Kenya (5200m) is a climber’s mountain, where one has to do a minimum of a 300 metre rock climb to gain the true summit. It is set in a national park/reserve, which is great for trekking as well, and trekkers can get to the hiking summit of Point Lenana, which is just under 5000 metres. For climbers, there is a plethora of routes to choose from, but the main ones are the Standard Route on the south side, and the Normal Route in the north side.
