Kilimanjaro is arguably the most romantic mountain on Planet Earth. Very few locations in our planet ignite such a mysticism and symbolism. Mount Kilimanjaro (5895 metres), which is also the highest free-standing mountain in the world. It has also been a symbol against Global Warming and maybe there will not be many years left before the Glaciers on top of Kilimanjaro melt..
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is a virtual climatic world tour, from the tropical rain forest on the lower slopes and alpine heath, to an almost bare alpine desert and finally the wintry Arctic summit of snow and ice, just 3 degrees south of the Equator.
Depending on which route one wants to take, the climb of Kilimanjaro can take between four to six nights on the mountain. While expert guides and porters will accompany you on your climb, no technical equipment is required on these routes.
