Mount Kilimanjaro

Astride the equator yet permanently snow-capped at 5895m (19340ft) high, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is Africa's roof top and the world's highest free standing mountain which can be climbed by any physically fit person. John Rebmann, a German missionary, was one of the first westerners to explore the mountain in 1841. He announced to the world the existence of Great Mountain "capped in a glacier".

Mount Kilimanjaro has several routes; they are Marangu, Machame, Western Breach, Mweka, Umbwe, Lemosho and Rongai. Click here to get details of Kilimanjaro Routes.

Peaks on Mount Kilimanjaro

Mt Kilimanjaro is composed of three peaks: Kibo (5895m)- whose highest peak is Uhuru Peak, Mawenzi (5150m)- which is a technical climb - and Shira (3962m). Its mass rises 4800m above a rolling plain that averages 1000m above sea level. After reaching a height of 5900m during its last major eruption 360,000 years ago, Kibo has been eroded by glaciers, rivers and landslides to its present height. It is believed that Kilimanjaro like its neighbor Mt. Kenya is loosing glaciers due to global warming.
