Inspirational climb

Mount Kilimanjaro sits at an impressive height of 5,895 meters above sea level. This mountain is worth the climb, for any goal-oriented person. Apart from being mesmerized by the breathtaking view of the Tanzania plain from the top, the climb will be self-rewarding. The trek is simple, but not easy. It requires commitment and endurance to complete the hike. But in the end, it will be the most rewarding journey.

Experience The Nature

Disconnecting from the busy-city life provides you time for self-discovery. Interact with the nature to make the most of your trip. It will take around 6-7 days to reach the top.

You will make stops at different locations in tent or huts. Enjoy the diverse landscape. On the way to the mountain top, you will see jungles, cultivated land, rain forest, alpine desert, heath, moorland, and arctic summit. Get acquainted with the eco-system, before you plant a victory flag on the top.

The arctic view

Mount Kilimanjaro has beautiful snow-caps. They have diminished by 80 percent due to global warming, witness Furtwangler Glacier top, before it diminishes even further.

The Tanzania view

Different terrain and wildlife provides the true taste of Africa. The top of Mount Kilimanjaro provides scenic view of Tanzania plane. Looking down from a height of 19,000 feet will be a life-changing moment.

Volcanic cones

Mount Kilimanjaro is known for its volcanic heritage. It has 3 volcanic cones namely, Mawenzi, Shira and Kibo. Mawenzi and Shira are no longer active, but Kibo (the highest peak) is dormant.
