The majestic Mount Kilimanjaro is an inactive stratovolcano in northern Tanzania, touching the border with Kenya. Standing at 5,895 meters (19,340 feet) above sea level, Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak and the world’s highest free-standing snow-covered dormant volcano.
Nearly 75,000 people climb Kilimanjaro every year so it is not the most untouched mountain, nor is it the toughest to trek. However, it is certainly a test of one’s endurance and determination, with altitude sickness being the main reason for the hikers not to summit.
Every mountain is unique and different from each other. In Tanzania, most climbers opt for Affordable Kilimanjaro Trekking Tours and Mount Meru. Mt Kilimanjaro, famously known as the “Roof of Africa”, stands almost 6000 meters above sea level and a wonderful mountain to explore the unique flora and fauna of the untouched rainforests.
