Kilimanjaro towers above the diverse nature of East Africa, dwarfing some of the largest landliving mammals in the world. But even as the most prominent mountain of its continent, its summit stands accessible to most. While the climb requires apt preparation and is most comfortably done in good physical shape, the mountain draws in visitors both for its challenge and its charm. Situated in the centre of a national park, the journey to the mountain takes challengers through iconic, wild Africa.This book tells the mountain's tale, from its formation and through history, and provides insight into the nature at its roots and slopes.The book also provides information on some of the many routes up the mountain and guidance to tackle the climate and extreme altitude climbers will meet on their way to the summit.The author has trekked and climbed for more than 45 years, has climbed 8,000-meter peaks, and has led hundreds of clients to the summit of Kilimanjaro on his numerous visits to "The Roof of Africa."
