MOUNT Kenya is a large central volcano just south of the equator in central Kenya. It rises to a height of 5,199 m above sea level. The base of the volcano covers an area of approximately 7,000 sq km, and is roughly circular in plan with an average diameter of 105 km. A detailed geological study1 indicated that some 1,500 m of the upper part of the mountain has been removed by erosion since the volcano was formed in the Plio-Pleistocene.
