Point Lenana

Point Lenana is the third highest peak of Mount Kenya, the second highest mountain in Africa after Mount Kilimanjaro. Standing at an elevation of 4,985 meters (16,355 feet), it is popular among mountaineers due to its accessibility. Unlike Batian and Nelion, the two highest peaks, Point Lenana does not require technical climbing skills and is often reached by hikers. The trek to this peak provides an immersive experience of the diverse ecosystems of Mount Kenya, including bamboo forests, high-altitude moorlands, and finally, the alpine zone. With its relatively moderate climb and stunning panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes, Point Lenana is a favored destination for those looking to experience the magnificence of East Africa’s mountainous terrain.
