Mount Kenya is the highest mountain in Kenya and the second-highest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro. The highest peaks of the mountain are Batian (5,199 metres (17,057 ft)), Nelion (5,188 metres (17,021 ft)) and Point Lenana (4,985 metres (16,355 ft)). Mount Kenya is located in central Kenya, just south of the equator, around 150 kilometers (93 mi) north-northeast of the capital Nairobi. Mount Kenya is the source of the name of the Republic of Kenya.

The Naro Moru route is the easiest and the best fastest and it is also the most popular route preferred by many onto the mountain, it is commonly used by many hikers, schools, scout groups, tour companies and private guides and potters leading clients up to Point Lenana.

  • It is not particularly scenic and the rapid ascent profile makes it unsuitable for climbers wishing to acclimatize more gradually and sensibly.
  • The Naro Moru route also features the steep quagmire of wet moorland that is extremely taxing and unpleasant after rains.
  • The final climb up to the Austrian Hut tackles a long, loose and uncompromising scree slope up to the side of the Teleki Valley.
  • Basically, you don't want to do this route unless you're in a hurry to bag Point Lenana on a quick 3-day program.
  • Descending via the Naro Moru route is fine, though.
