Mount Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira, is an inactive stratovolcano in north-eastern Tanzania and the highest mountain in Africa at 5,895 metres or 19,341 ft above sea level (the Uhuru Peak / Kibo Peak). Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest freestanding mountain as well as the 4th most prominent mountain in the world, rising 5,895 metres or 19,298 ft from the base.

mount kilimanjaro Kilimanjaro is a giant stratovolcano that began forming a million years ago, when lava spilled from the Rift Valley zone. Two of its three peaks, Mawenzi and Shira, are extinct while Kibo (the highest peak) is dormant and could erupt again. The last major eruption has been dated to 360,000 years ago, while the most recent activity was recorded just 200 years ago. Although it is dormant, Kibo has fumaroles that emit gas in the crater. Scientists concluded in 2003 that molten magma is just 400 m (1,310 ft) below the summit crater. Several collapses and landslides have occurred on Kibo in the past, one creating the area known as the Western Breach.

Mount Kilimanjaro Routes
Marangu Route

Marangu Route is the most popular route of Mt. Kilimanjaro. This is also the only route where solar power hut accommodation is possible for each night of the trek on the mountain. This route can be completed in 5 days, however your chance of conquering the highest point of Mt. Kilimanjaro is much higher if you can allow for the extra included day for acclimatisation.

Machame Route

Rongai Route

Rongai Route begins on the Eastern side of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Though this is a camping route, it is one of the easiest climbing routes on the mountain. The night before your final ascent will be in hut accommodation. This trek can also be done in 5 days, but it is recommended that at least 6 days be taken for the best chance of success and as many days as desired can be added on to make your climb a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

Lemosho/Shira Route

The Lemosho/ Shira route consists of two tracks (Lemosho and Londrosi) starting at the same point on the Western side of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Once you arrive at the Shira plateau, the vegetation change is spectacular, with open grasslands sweeping into moorlands. After this point you will pass the impressive Shira Cone, Shira Cathedral and then Shira Needles. For an enjoyable hike, this trek requires a minimum of 7 days, though 8 or 9 days is recommended.

Umbwe Route

This is a very steep route, first taking you through beautiful forest before culminating into a challenging approach to the summit. Ice and mud can be expected on this track at any time of the year, and as this is such a direct route,it's advised to not rush this trek.
