Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park

One of the world's most renowned summits, Mount Kilimanjaro attracts trekkers from across the globe, aspiring to reach its glacial peaks. With three volcanic cones, this dormant volcano holds the title of highest mountain in Africa, rising an awe-inspiring 5,895 m (19,341 ft) into the clouds. One-day tours let you walk the mountain's lower terrain and gaze up at some spectacular scenery. Experienced hikers can take on a larger expedition, averaging around nine days. The most popular times of year are the dry seasons (January through mid-March and June through October), as these afford better conditions and clearer vistas. Arrange treks through a tour operator.
