Kilimanjaro Ascent:


At 5896 metres ( nearly four miles) above sea level, the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest point on earth to which you can walk. This is a mountain of contrasts and extremes. You start from tropical rain forest and finish in arctic conditions, passing through a landscape formed by ice and fire. Yet any well-prepared walker with enough determination may be able to reach 'the Roof of Africa'. The greatest challenge is the huge altitude gain with the attendant risk of altitude sickness.
