Access issues inherited from Lukenya

Lukenya is owned by the Mountain Club of Kenya and entrance is free for members. Non-members have to pay for a daily membership (KES400 for Kenyan citizens, KES800 for others, payable by Mpesa paybill no 880926. Account: guest fee). No commercial groups are allowed. Some climbs are occasionally off-limits when eagles are nesting (in particular Eagles Nest Face).

Ethic inherited from Lukenya

Lukenya is mostly trad. No bolting is allowed without a special permission from the Mountain Club of Kenya.



History timeline chart

The origin of the rock art is not certain, but could be from Masaai pastoralists in the 19th century. Lukenya has a wealth of rock art sites and other archeological sites (recognised by "GVJM-**) painted on the rock, with discoveries of ancient Batwa tools and animal bones.
