CLIMB MOUNT KILIMANJARO
Unbiased & Comprehensive – The #1 Kilimanjaro Guide since 2001
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE ONLINE KILIMANJARO GUIDE…
Welcome to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro, for more than a decade the most complete and trustworthy guide to climbing Africa’s Highest Mountain. By visiting this website, you have taken the first step on your journey to the Roof of Africa. A journey that will take you from your favourite armchair all the way to Uhuru Peak – at 5895m (19,341ft) above sea level, it’s the very highest point on the entire African continent.
As you may know, Africa’s Highest Mountain is also a ‘walkable’ mountain. That is to say, no technical climbing skills are required to reach the summit. But that’s not to say it’s easy. An iron will and calves of steel are just two of the attributes you’ll need to make it to the top – for this is a mountain that truly tests your mettle.
While the guide book provides comprehensive advice on climbing, including reviews of all the trekking companies and guides to the towns and cities that will act as the base for your trek, the information on this site is more than enough to help you prepare properly for your trip.
If you’re in a hurry, just scroll down the page to find essential facts on the mountain, together with answers to the questions we get asked most often. But if you also have the time to explore this site more fully, you’ll find that it’s divided into four main sections, which together provide you with all the basics you need to know to plan and prepare properly for your Mt Kilimanjaro trek.
