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.
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.
