Mount Kilimanjaro Trekking – Standing at a towering 5,895m high, Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain on the African continent and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Located in northern Tanzania, in the Kilimanjaro National Park, it is often referred to as “The Roof of Africa” and people travel from all over the world to conquer her.
The cloud-swathed peaks of Africa’s highest mountain inspire climbers of all ages and abilities. This magnificent, still partially ice-capped peak crowns fantastically lush volcanic slopes, with plenty of wildlife interest along the lower forest trails. Climbs can be arranged up a variety of different routes, and with various options for accommodation. It is worth taking the time to acclimatize and enjoy the climb; altitude sickness accounts for most failed attempts to reach the summit.
Mount Kilimanjaro has six trekking routes and each route has its own advantages and disadvantages, so when selecting the route, make sure it is the appropriate route for your desires, physical ability, aptitude, and comfort level as this will contribute to your overall summit success.
