In the beautiful land of Tanzania lies a destination of enormous size with an impeccable overlook! So what is it you might ask? Mt. Kilimanjaro!
With its three volcanic cones, “Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and “Shira”, is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, and rises approximately 4,900 metres (16,100 ft) from its base to 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level. The first persons known to have reached the summit of the mountain were Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller in 1889. The mountain is part of the Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination. The mountain has been the subject of many scientific studies because of its shrinking glaciers and disappearing ice fields.
Such an awe inspiring to visit with a history like no other! Since it is the largest mountain in Africa, surely you will not be able to make the climb in one day, but you can add it to your bucket list of adventures to do before hit 85! Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest freestanding mountain on earth. Crowned with an everlasting snow-cap, this majestic mountain can be found inside the Kilimanjaro National Park of Tanzania, at 005.00 degrees south, 036 degrees east, 5895m a.m.s.l. So for those of you wondering, yes you do have to suite up before the climb, just think a snow vacation with a beaming sun.
