The mountain is a masterpiece, about the cold, its "heat taking". The adventure is one of a kind as you try to scale your way up the mountain. tiresome and amazing.

The sky view is fabulous. The snow capped mountain Mount Kenya gives you the best feeling of adventure. The aware of the coldness. Keep warm every-time. Don't forget your mountaineering gear.

This Mountain is the only mountain located exactly in Equator and when you are up there you may think you are in another place due to formational features,like sharp peaks,escarpments,gorges,lobelia plants and mostly what makes this mountain to be different with other mountains,is hanging tarns that are above 4400 meters above sea level.
