Mt. Kilimanjaro & Moshi
About Mt. Kilimanjaro & Moshi
Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and fourth highest of the Seven Summits. It is the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, with Uhuru Peak rising to an altitude of 5,895 m. Kilimanjaro is composed of three distinct volcanic cones: Kibo 5,893 m; Mawenzi 5,149 m; and Shira 3,962 m. Uhuru Peak is the highest summit on Kibo's crater rim. It is a giant stratovolcano that began forming a million years ago, when lava spilled from the Rift Valley zone. Two of its three peaks, Mawenzi and Shira, are extinct while Kibo is dormant and could erupt again. The last major eruption has been dated to 360,000 years ago, while the most recent activity was recorded just 200 years ago.Read More
