The Shining Mountain
First ascended in 1899 by Halford Mackinder, a geographer and director of the London School of Economics, Mount Kenya, or Kirinyaga, is Kenya's highest mountain and has three separate peaks – Batian, Nelion and Point Lenana – of which, at 5,199m (17,057ft), Batian is the highest. It is also the second-highest mountain in Africa, after Kilimanjaro. Mount Kenya sits just south of the Equator, in central Kenya, around 150km north-east of Nairobi – and was the source for the Republic of Kenya's name.
