Mt Kilimanjaro Trekking
Mt Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano that last erupted over 100 years ago but has snow cover year round because of its high altitude and proximity to the equator. Mt Kilimanjaro has three volcanic cones: Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira; Uhuru Peak (5,895m) on Kibo is the highest point on the mountain with a crater that can be reached by hikers after an ascent of about six days from base camp at 3,600m altitude; Mawenzi
The Kilimanjaro trek is an unforgettable experience. It is a physical and mental challenge that requires a lot of preparation and time. But the reward is worth it: the stunning view of Kilimanjaro at sunrise, the feeling of accomplishment, and the satisfaction of knowing you have achieved something great.
There are many routes to take on Kilimanjaro, but they all follow the same general path: from Marangu Gate in Tanzania to Uhuru Peak in Kenya. The routes vary in terms of their difficulty and duration, but they all offer incredible scenery, wildlife sightings, and breathtaking views of Africa’s highest mountain.
The first route most commonly taken by trekkers is Marangu Route which takes 6 days with 3 camps (Marangu Gate to Horombo Hut) before reaching Uhuru Peak. This route has a height gain of 2,000 meters (6,500 ft) with only one steep section towards the summit.
