Mackinder Hut (14,200')
The real deal. Well it's not a K2. But this is a fricken cool mountain. - IT'S GOT ROCK on it! Long expanses of quality rock.
Fly to Narobi cross the equator and head to the trail head. A casual two day hike in gets you to basecamp. There is a pretty darn good hut there at basecamp as it is used for many treking groups that come through regularly. This is the north side of the mountain that I describe as I did not go to the south side. South basecamp I hear is also quite comfy.
