Mount Kenya National Park/Natural Forest
At 5,199 m, Mount Kenya is the second highest peak in Africa. It is an ancient extinct volcano, during whose period of activity (3.12.6 million years ago) it is thought to have risen to 6,500 m. There are 12 remnant glaciers on the mountain, all receding rapidly, and four secondary peaks that sit at the head of the U-shaped glacial valleys. With its rugged glacier-clad summits and forested middle slopes, Mount Kenya is one of the most impressive landscapes in East Africa. The evolution and ecology of its afro-alpine flora also provide an outstanding example of ecological processes.

Mt. Kenya is frequently shrouded in misty clouds so I was very happy on my 4th day in Nyeri to step outside and see it clearly against a blue sky. The best chances for this are to get up early because the clouds close it in by most late mornings. Mt. Kenya is a technical climb, much harder than Kilimanjaro...but there are beginner-intermediate hikes of all sorts on the lower flanks.
The nearby Aberderes MUST be visited. Waterfalls, mountains, wildlife, very beautiful.
