Summiting Mt.Kenya was one of the items in my 2017 travel bucket list. I knew I was going to tick it off my list but had no idea how and when exactly.
As luck would have it,I met Duncan of Xtrym Adventures in a Fam trip organized by The Kenya Tourism Board and as they say,the rest is history.
After the Mt.Kenya Easter 2017 Edition,I am strongly convinced that it is one of the best local tour companies I have gone on a trip with.
Here are 20 photos taken during the hike that should inspire you to look up Xtyrm Adventures for the next expedition.

When they say clear,clean spring water I guess this is what they meant.

Whenever you see these kind of grass in the mountains, be sure the place has not be polluted one bit!
I was not sure whether this was fog or clouds… but I told my friends I touched the clouds..he he.
