MT KENYA ASCENT

Great trek but I wouldn't recommend going in June as we had tremendous amount of rain (all day).  We also got lost on day 5 and ended up walking up to 11 hours (instead of 7) prior to summit day...

MT KENYA ASCENT

My first trekking up a mountain experience!  However this is not a walk in the park, and one I certainly would not really recommend - except maybe to my enemy!

MT KENYA ASCENT

Mount Kenya is frequently desribed by friends as a 'prettier' climb than Mt Killimanjaro, so with that in mind I set off on the ascent with a group of like minded souls from various walks of life.

MT KENYA ASCENT

For an 8 day trip, this was a real adventure.  Although primarily about reaching the summit of Mount Kenya, I thought travelling about 150 miles across the centre of Kenya, and back into the centre of Nairobi, was a really interesting experience - a panorama of people, animals, the Kenyan landscape and East Africa.

MT KENYA ASCENT

A great experience but harder than the impression given from the daily height gains shown in the trip notes. There's a lot of additional ups and downs involved.  This isn't just trekking straight up a mountain. Several people in the party who've done Kilimanjaro said Mount Kenya was more beautiful, varied and difficult and required a wider variety of mountaineering skills. The trip notes for the final two days need to be revised as they don't reflect the situation on the ground.

Exodus Response

The trip notes have been revised for 2012 as we now ascent via a different route to that used in 2011. The path for the final ascent to the summit had become unpredictable underfoot especially when it has snowed a day or two before any ascent. The park authorities had promised to put up a cable for trekkers to support themselves with, but this has not happened at the time of writing, so we now ascent via an alternative route.
