Tanzania - Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,344ft or 5,896m) lies in East Africa, just 3° south of the equator. Its massif has two main peak areas; we'll be climbing to Uhuru Peak on Kibo via Stella Point. Enjoying the sunrise view from Africa's highest point is among the most exhilarating sensations one could experience.
Our slow, steady ascent will be via one of the least traveled, most beautiful routes, Machame. We'll trek through five different climate zones: cultivation, lush montane forest, moorland, high alpine tundra and the summit. No technical mountaineering experience is required, but the steep trails and high altitude make the trek a challenging one.
With an extra day for acclimatization and exploration on the Shira Plateau, one of the most fascinating and scenic areas on Kilimanjaro, we'll be ready for our final push to the summit. From the summit of Kibo, you'll see Kili's Inner Crater and the dramatic ice cliffs of the Great Northern Glacier with its fluted pillars and buttresses as high as 100'. This is African high adventure at its best; we'll be camping in style with great food all the way to the top, making this a great trek for everyone. Trekking Grade
