Mount Kenya is a stratovolcano created approximately 3 million years after the opening of the East African rift. Before glaciations, it was 7,000 m (23,000 ft) high. It was covered by an ice cap for thousands of years. This has resulted in very eroded slopes and numerous valleys radiating from the centre. There are currently 11 small glaciers. The forested slopes are an important source of water for much of Kenya. Mount Kenya climb Sirimon Route – Sirimon route
