Challenging climb for incredible vistas...
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro
Rising to a height of 5,895 metres above sea level, the dormant volcanic peak of Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain and forms the centrepiece of the Kilimanjaro National Park, Tanzania's most visited. Comprised of three volcanic cones known as Kibo, Mawenzi and Shira, the mountain is a major climbing destination, attracting some 25,000 people each year attempting to scale the summit. Only two thirds succeed, battling the extreme altitude and glacial terrain. Those that do are rewarded with incredible vistas from Uhuru Peak above the clouds, literally touching the sky. There are seven official routes leading to the summit, approaching from different sides and striking through different terrains. But no matter which route you choose, the challenge of scaling Mount Kilimanjaro's imposing height is guaranteed to provide the experience of a lifetime.
