Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing
Mount Kilimanjaro lies on the border of
Tanzania and Kenya, just south of the Equator. To the
west lies the Great African Rift Valley, created by
tremendous tectonic forces which also gave birth to a
string of other volcanoes. One of these, Mount Kenya,
was originally much higher than Mount Kilimanjaro.
three summits of Mount Kilimanjaro, Shira, Kibo and
Mawenzi are all of very recent origin. Shira and Mawenzi
both have suffered considerable erosion and only jagged
peaks remain. Kibo, the central, youngest and highest
peak has survived as an almost perfect cone.
Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, now
attracts many thousands of walkers each year. On the 1st
of January 2000 over 1000 people reached the summit to
see the sun rise over a new Millennium.
