Standing at a height of 19,341 feet/5,895 meters, the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is the highest peak in Africa and the world's tallest free-standing mountain. Once you've reached the peak at 6,000 m altitude you can revel and relish the wonderful view. Luckily the Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing down is much easier than up!
The mountain is also popular among adventurous hikes as it is not a technical climb but the hiking trails are a little challenging. There are five distinct climate zones to pass starting from rainforest to alpine desert and eventually the Glacier Peak.
There are plenty of ways to get to the top. But be prepared because the Kilimanjaro Climb is tough and demanding. It is not possible to start Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing without any specific mountaineering training or equipment but you need to be physically fit and mentally strong. In return you'll be rewarded by spectacular views and the satisfaction of having reached the top.
There is a total of six Kilimanjaro Climbing Routes, the most famous being The Marangu Route (nicknamed as 'The Coca Cola Route)'. If you are an experienced climber or if you are in great shape you can also consider the Lemosho route - Definitely not for infants.
