Mount Kenya, a distinctly separate massif from the Aberdares, it forms part of the central highlands of Kenya. This is Africa’s second highest mountain at 5199m, with a gleaming and eroded snow-capped peak it can be seen for miles until the late-morning clouds obscure the view. Trekking Mt. Kenya is one of the great African experiences. It is locally deified by the local Kikuyu community as home of Ghai (God).
