Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, and the World’s highest free standing structure. It rises above the hot and dusty Maasai Steppe, approximately 5895 meters above sea level. The mountain is part of the Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination. The mountain has been the subject of many scientific studies because of its shrinking glaciers. Hiking on the rooftop of Africa is the adventure, and anyone who is physically fit can scale this snow capped mountain. There are different routes to the top involving different villages and scenarios. With all these routes to the top Mount Kilimanjaro is however not only the highest free standing peak in the world but also highest accessible point. Kilimanjaro rises through lush rainforests to alpine meadows and finally crosses a barren lunar landscape to the twin summits.
