Mount Kenya is the country's highest mountain. The mountain consists of three principal zones, the rocky peak area, with its cloak of glaciers and snowfields, the alpine zone with distinctive giant vegetation, and the vast gentle slopes drenched in mountain forest bamboo jungle. Most visitors are content with marveling at the mountains beauty from a distance. For the more adventurous, the lesser peak of the mountain can be conquered without much difficulty. However this does require a certain degree of fitness, as the air towards the topis quite thin.
