Mountains In Kenya

Mountains In Kenya. Some are famous and worldwide known. But some are still in low keys. An indication that Kenya is one of the best places to enjoy hiking/mountainreing/climbing, among other outdoor activities that need a mountain.

Let’s explore some of them.

Mount Kenya

It is the highest mountain in our country with several different peaks. The highest ones being the Batian, Nelson and Lenana peaks. Some of the peaks that make hiker and climbers proud of themselveswhen they manage to conquer them.

This mountain is surrounded by the Mount Kenya National Park.

Mount Elgon

It is located at the border of Kenya and Uganda. Allowing you an opportunity to enjoy two countries. It is also the second highest after the Mount Kenya.

Just like Mount Kenya, it is surrounded by the Mount Elgon National Park on the Kenyan side.

It’s a volcano mountain and has one of the largest calderas.

Mount Longonot

It’s a dormant volcano mountain which is heavily forested. And surrounded by national park. It’s considered to be a twin park to the Hell’s Gate National Park.

Mount Marsabit

It’s a volcano mountain surrounded by the Marsabit National Park.

Menengai

This one is found in my hometown, Nakuru. It’s a volcano mountain with one of the biggest calderas. I remember our older friends joking that the smoke coming out of the calderas was the devil burning the bad guys. Yet it was the locals burning charcoal.

Ol Donyo Eburru

It’s an active volcano mountain famously used by geothermal energ exploiters.

It’s surrounded by conservation areas such as the Soysambu Conservancy, Lake Elementaita as well as Lake Nakuru.
