Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in 2018 with Altezza Travel

 

Climbing Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, is becoming a dream for many enthusiasts of active vacations. Kilimanjaro’s magnificent height entices mountaineers from all over the world. We offer our centuries old expertise in organizing hiking tours to Africa’s greatest volcano for all people determined to delve into this wild adventure.

 

At the height of 5859 meters above sea level, Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in Africa and the highest freestanding mountain in the world. Starting from 1912 more than 4/5 of the ice-cover on Kilimanjaro melted away. Until the mid XX century, 1% of the glaciers melted away yearly, while from 1989 to 2007 the melting rate increased reaching 2.5% per year. By 2033 Kilimanjaro is expected to completely lose its snow cap.

 

This means that you should use the time that is left to set your eyes on the spectacular view near the equator and step on Kilimanjaro’s snowy summit.
