A few facts about Mount Kenya:
- Mount Kenya is 17,057 feet high. It is the highest mountain in Kenya and the second highest in Africa
- An area of 276 square miles around the mountain’s centre is designated as a National Park, as well as a World Heritage site. The park attracts over 16,000 visitors each year.
- The several peaks on the mountain were formed by volcanic eruptions, and the mountain is made from different types of volcanic rock. However, the last eruption was over 2 million years ago.
- Because Mount Kenya is located on the equator, the sun rises and sets at almost exactly the same time each day, 5:30 am and 5:30 pm
