Just the name alone can be intimidating, and may even strike fear into the hearts of those who have heard the legends of this almost mythical mountain.
For many, it is seen as the ultimate challenge to be conquered. For adventure seekers and diehard mountain climbers alike, the bragging rights of saying you have tackled this formidable foe is indeed seen as a bucket list goal you should strive to achieve.
The tallest and most famous mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro is actually a dormant volcano—which only adds to its allure and legendary status. Exploring this wonder of Mother Nature is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It offers many unique opportunities, including the chance to travel through a number of diverse ecosystems. A trek up the mountain will involve passing through the atmosphere of a tropical rainforest, as well as both a desert and an arctic-type snowcap. Few other routes on earth can offer such a diverse range of environmental conditions in a single journey.
Thousands of people flock to Mount Kilimanjaro every year with the goal of making it to the top, although many of those end up abandoning their quest at some point along the way. However, even just making the attempt is an admirable feat that can leave you with amazing and unforgettable memories.
