MOUNT KILIMANJARO

5,895 M


Mount Kilimanjaro located in Tanzania is the highest mountain in Africa, and rises approximately 4,900m from its base to 5,895m above sea level. The first recorded ascent to the summit of the mountain was by Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller in 1889. The mountain is part of the Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination. The mountain has been the subject of many scientific studies because of its shrinking glaciers. Machame is a challenging and scenic route, but in the other hand is the most successful route to climb in Mount Kilimanjaro mainly because of two important factors. the topography of this route, allow you to climb high and sleep low, guarantee all climbers with maximum acclimatization process. The summit attempt path from Barafu camp has less loose scree (rocks) compared to the summit attempt path from Kibo Hut, making it slightly easier to reach the crater rim. Kilimanjaro is definitely the best mountain to climb as a starting point if you plan to scale the seven summits (7 highest mountain in seven continent)
