Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa and the largest free standing mountain on earth. This amazing mountain is capped with glaciers that are rapidly disappearing. Mount Kilimanjaro is actually made up of 3 volcanic cones that form 1 single moutain. Shira to the west, Mawenzi to the East and Kibo which is the tallest. The summit, Uhuru peak, sits at 19,341ft/5,895m.
On your trek you will move through 4 distinct climate zones. From rainforest at the bottom, to moorland, alpine desert and finally arctic at the summit. This high altitude environment is amazing and for many people, climbing Kilimanjaro is the achievement of a lifetime. To watch the sun rise over the glaciers of the summit is a truly life changing experience!
