Kilimanjaro - Highest mountain of Africa

Kilimanjaro - Highest mountain of Africa

The Kilimanjaro, the highset mountain of Africa, is a volcano and has 3 different volcanic craters. These are Shira, Mawenzi and Kibo. The latter is the highest and there, Uhuru Peak is the highest point on the rim of the crater and thus the MOSTPOINT. Kibo is a dormant volcano crater while the others are extinguished. Uhuru peak has an altitude of 5,888 m / 19,318 ft as  measured in 2014. The first successfull climb to the Kibo crater rim was in 1889. There are now seven routes to the summit called Lemosho, Machame, Marangu, Mweka, Rongai, Shira, and Umbwe. Of all these routes, Machame is known as the most beautiful but also a steeper route. The most commonly used route is the Marangu which is relatively easy. The easiest but also the least scenic route is the Rongai. Getting to Uhuru and back usually takes 6 or 7 days of trekking.

The kilimanjaro is also the highest freesstanding mounatin in the World!

What else is there
A safari combined with the mountain tour is obviously a very good idea.

Notes
It seems like an easy mountain to climb and technically this is true but do not forget acclimatization because of the altitude and the danger of cold and strong winds.
