Mt. Kenya - Batain peak : LUSENET : MCK Virtual Clubhouse--Climbing : One Thread

I am looking to try to climb Batain Peak next January and am wondering if you can tell me the best approach as far as porters and climbing guide. Is it better to go with a pre-planned trip through a company or find porters and guides locally?

Thanks for your advice - Peter Len

It is easy to sort out a trip up Mt Kenya through either a company or finding guides locally. This website recommends a number of companies, this is good if you want them to sort out everything, cooks etc. You can do it more locally by ringing the porters and guides assoc in Naro Moro (see website for tel. no), this option is cheaper. I use two guide from there called: Benson and Heilam. Hope this helps. Pop into the Mountain Club in Nairobi before you go up to get a few extra tips if you like.
