Voluntourism.

Be a voluntourist in Kenya and leave impressions!

Do you believe in conservation?

Would you like to conserve Mount Kenya forest?

Would you like to spearhead efforts in conserving Mt Kenya forest and its snow-capped peaks?

If your answer to these questions is yes, then be part of the many volunteers with the heart to leave good impressions to our future generations by saving MT Kenya snow and forest from extinction.

There are concerted efforts by Kenya Youth hostels association and the Kenya Voluntary and community development project that’s joint efforts is to green the Mount Kenya and restore its lost glory, this is proving a success.

We are offering volunteers a chance for a hands-on experience by personally contributing to and important community project in Mt Kenya by planting trees as you climb or take a trekking tour of the mountain which over the years seem to be losing at a very alarming rate its most attractive snow due to global warming.

Most of which has been caused by human due to illegal logging of trees which has caused loss of wildlife and water most rivers from its source have dried up but this is something that requires human intervention to correct and restore for the betterment of our future generations.

This program can be done by everyone going up the mountain on his or her way up and or down get to plant at least a tree or more and if this trend is maintained thousands of travellers climbing MT Kenya on a budget  can be asked to plant a tree of their choice and in about a couple of years, lots of trees would be coming up and the beauty of it is that one tree per hiker is more than appreciated we will have the mountain as a heritage site for Kenya and we can pride ourselves with its success.

Join this by booking a tour to MT Kenya with YHA-Kenya Travel and get to plant a tree or trees on your way up or down trees will be provided free with this package and you will have played your part.

You can as well choose to take the option for volunteer travel for a week or two and you can spend time in the forest planting trees.

Mt.Kenya is Africa’s second highest mountain after Kilimanjaro. This extinct volcano is estimated to be 2.5 million years old. Time has taken its toll on the former, reducing the peak from 6500m to 5199 m today, while nature’s untiring eroding agents long ago eroded the crater.
Mt. Kenya is located 180km north of Nairobi within the Mount Kenya National Park. The park protected area 3200m above sea level and was established in 1949 and covers an area of 715 sq km. The mountain comprised of three main zones: - the rocky peak zone, the afro-alpine moorland with it’s scattering of giant vegetation and the extensive tower slope covered with mountain forest and a bamboo there are over 81plant species. Any fit and prepared person can reach point Lenana, the so-called trekker’s peak; the summit has the twin peaks of 5199m Batian and Nelion and is considered more technically challenging than the higher Mt Kilimanjaro at 5894m.

Choose between Sirimon-Chogoria and Naro Moru Routes.

Mt. Kenya National Park.

Mount Kenya, at an altitude of 5199 [17058ft] the country's highest mountain, has its higher slope permanently covered in snow and ice, even though it sits astride the equator.

The National Park comprises the mountain above the 320m [10,500ft] contour plus two salient astride the Naro Moru and the Sirimon routes.

The mountain consists of three peaks the Batian [the highest] Nelion and Lenana. Of these peaks, the original hard center core is all that remains; the bulk of the volcano has been eroded away with time.
