Looming proudly from the grassy plains of Northern Tanzania is Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak and the world’s tallest freestanding mountain at 5,895 m. With 5 distinct ecological zones on the slopes ranging from luscious rainforest to barren high-altitude desert, the mountain is one of the most beautiful and dramatic. Technically the climb isn’t a difficult one, but it can be challenging in places. But when you reach the magnificent Ulhuru Peak as dawn breaks over the icy landscape, every blister and bite pales into insignificance.
