Mountain Kilimanjaro Climbing Tours

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro which stands at a towering height of 5,895 meters or 19,341 ft above sea level is one of the favorite mountain climbing destinations in the world among mountaineers and tourists alike. It was first summitted by Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller in 1889 and since then many people have successfully climbed to the top. Reportedly, somewhere around 60,000 people trek Mount Kilimanjaro each year. Kilimanjaro Itineraries

It is a large stratovolcano which is made up of many layers of hardened lava. It is made up of three distinct volcanic cones or peaks, namely, Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira, among which Kibo is the highest at 5895 meters which is the highest point in Africa. The highest point is known as Uhuru peak and reaching there will give you a sense of pride of self accomplishment.

But to Climb Kilimanjaro, you’d have to come with planning and preparation. There is not one, not two, but eight different Kilimanjaro trekking routes each having their own advantages and disadvantages. Also you’d have to improve your fitness level and endurance and get properly acclimatized to increase your chances of summitting to the top. Giving very less time to body to acclimatize itself and adapt is the main reason of failure for most trekkers. Kilimanjaro Itineraries
