Africa’s highest mountain stands a proud 5,896m and is surrounded by a national park of 756 sq. km. All routes lead to the summit circuit and twin peaks Kibo and Mawenzi (5,149 m), which are connected by an 11 km saddle. The collapsed peak Shira (3,962 m) has become a crater. Many attempts the climb but only 20-50% complete the top.
Mount Kilimanjaro National Park is located at the north/eastern tip of Tanzania. For the adventurous, a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro is a must taking you through the mists of equatorial jungle to reach the snows and breath-taking views from the summit.
How to get there
getting to the African continent is getting easier compared to those days, but very much easier and pretty safe compared to other countries in the world. you can connect to Mount Kilimanjaro National Park via Kilimanjaro international airport 36km from Moshi or you may preferably land in Arusha airport.
The upward track wends through forests that vary constantly with the altitude and finally opens out into open moorland below rocky, snow-covered Kibo plateau. It has 3 volcanic centers, Shira, Kibo, and Mawenzi. 7 & 8-day climbs are easily arranged from Marangu 42 km from Moshi or Arusha and are the perfect start to your trip to Tanzania.
