The Mt. Kenya trek is not as popular as the Kilimanjaro trek, so why should you pick it instead of Kilimanjaro?

Well, first of all, you should not pick one of them, you should do both.But if you can only do one of them, these would be some reasons why you should pick Mt. Kenya.

1) It is much cheaper
2) It is a very beautiful trek in many ways
3) The summit is a real peak, where you do some easy scrambling.
4) The summit night is not long, boring and brutal, as is the case with Kilimanjaro
5) Lower altitude, and less of a chance of suffering from altitude sickness
6) You can stay in huts along the way, or you can tent, up to you
7) The weather is usually favorable compared to Kilimanjaro
8) Fewer people

Feel free to check out my video from when I did the Mt. Kenya trek to see what it is like :)
