Dream It. Do It. The Highest Peak in Africa.
Marangu route is the oldest & most established route. The route offers dormitory huts instead of camping. Despite being a dormant volcano, Kilimanjaro offers hikers a miscellany of heavenly landscapes. Starting off with the hot, dry savanna, through the rainforest and hardy scrublands, finally finishing off to a rocky and icy summit at 5895 meters (19,340 feet) above sea level.
And throughout the entire expedition to the summit, Tanzanian porters become joyful companions offering to share the quirky ways & captivating stories of their indigenous cultures, & of course, the famous 'Hakuna Matata'.
Mt Kilimanjaro is located in a country home to several national parks & a huge array of biodiversity, Tanzania. This august mountain (or jebel as they call it there) rises magnificently out of savannah to become the highest in the continent of Africa, & the only African peak to be blanketed in snow.
Beginning with the cultivated zone which gradually progresses to rainforested regions, the ecosystem is then dominated by giant heather, wild grasses & a rocky trail. The adrenaline-triggering adventurous moorland later gives way to a highland desert that provides a spectacular view of the vast icy glaciers that cling to the peak. What lies ahead is called the Arctic Zone, the aesthetic ice crossing which one reaches the Uhuru peak of Mt Kilimanjaro, dubbed correctly as the 'Roof of Africa'.
Dotted here & there with streams clear as crystal & small flowers pretty as a picture, Kilimanjaro is, veritably, an abode for mountaineers.
