There’s something inspiring, intriguing and educative about Mt. Kilimanjaro that makes it a staple bucket list option. Each year, over 20,000 climbers take a break from the routine, brave their fears and inhibitions to indulge in the joys and challenges of the journey. It’s time for you to opt for Kilimanjaro climbing packages and embark on a life-enriching experience.
Mt. Kilimanjaro: An Introduction
Mt. Kilimanjaro stands majestically in northeast Tanzania just 330 kilometres from the equator, as Africa’s tallest and world’s 7th tallest peak. The summit, known as Uhuru Point, is 4,900 meters high from the base and measures 5,895 meters from the sea level. Formed by volcanic activity, Mt. Kilimanjaro is the tallest free-standing mountain peak. Simply put, it is not a part of any mountain range as opposed to other high peaks, including Mt. Everest.
Previously, Mt. Kilimanjaro was home to three volcanic cones, namely KIBO, MAWENZI and SHIRA. KIBO is the most majestic of the three, accommodating the summit, while SHIRA cone seizes to exist now, as it collapsed to form a plateau. Although KIBO is a dormant volcano, it has no history of eruption for 3.6 million years. The rest two are extinct volcanoes. Additionally, the mountain is prone to erosion, which is taking a significant toll on its height.
In lack of supporting evidence, there’s simply no consensus on how the peak got its name. Some believe it originates from KILIMA, a Swahili word for mountain, while others consider it as a derivative of NJARO, the CHAGGA word for white. Though the etymology is shrouded in mystery, the climbing history is well recorded. Hans Meyer led several expeditions to the top but succeeded only in 1889 when joined by Ludwig Purtscheller and Yohani Kinyala Lauwo.

Mt. Kilimanjaro is more than just a mountain – it’s rather the rooftop of Africa frequented by men and women undeterred by challenges and guided by passion. Need more reasons to come out of your comfort zone and explore the effervescent charm of mountains? Here’re they.
