It is believed by geologists that Mount Kenya might have been higher than Everest. After fierce volcanic activity, several millennia past, the mountain has lost much its height. Ranked as Africa’s second highest peak at 4895m, Mount Kenya, while not as high as neighbouring Mount Kilimanjaro, is far more difficult to summit. The rocky trails are often steep but climbers are rewarded with amazing views and an enormous feeling of accomplishment.
