Mount Kenya National Park



Mount Kenya (5199m), the second highest mountain in Africa after Mount Kilimanjaro, is a towering extinct volcano . The peak, located about 140km north-east of Capital Nairobi, domineers the landscape of the Kenyan highlands. Appearance of the mountain differs with altitude. On high central peaks, rock and snow carpet it, while on slopes, it is covered by forests and scrubs. Twin features of glaciered summits and forested slopes make it an impressive landscape.
