Mt Kilimanjaro Climbing
Also referred as the Roof of Africa or the Crown of Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro is both Africa’s highest mountain and the world’s tallest free standing peak (i.e. it’s standing all by itself in a plain ground, it’s not one peak of many in a mountainous range). Standing at 5,875 metres above sea level, Kilimanjaro is also distinctive as it is located just 330km from the equator.
Mount Kilimanjaro consists of three volcanic summits. Shira (3,962 m) the oldest one of the three Kilimanjaro summits is already extinct. Mawenzi (5,149 m) and the youngest summits Kibo (5,895 m) are dormant volcano and could erupt again in the future.
