What does it mean to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro? Trekking to 19,341 feet above sea level on the Roof of Africa is the only way to find out! Mt. Kilimanjaro boasts the highest elevation peak on the African continent and is one of the Seven Summits. The dormant volcano commands respect as its impressive prominence makes it visible for hundreds of miles around. As a challenging and lengthy trek with no technical climbing, it is no wonder that Kilimanjaro is the crowning jewel atop many an adventurer's dream sheet.
The Machame Route is incredibly scenic and 7 days on the mountain will offer plenty of time to take in the majesty of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The ascent begins in lush afromontane forest, continues across the Shira Plateau which offers stunning views of the three peaks, and finishes atop Uhuru Peak. It is the most popular route to the summit and the well worn path holds a strong track record for successful journeys.
