Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest point in the entire continent of Africa, thus commonly known as the roof of Africa, at 5,895 m above sea level.
Mt Kili is a dormant volcano with 3 volcanic cones: Kibo, Shira and Mawenzi (thus the hospital name). It is of the most famous destinations for trekking and is currently under scrutiny because of it is melting glaciers.
We couldn’t always spot Mt Kili from Moshi, but when we could, what can I say… It was breath-taking. I often used the word breath-taking, but I only appreciated the true meaning of it when I looked at Mt Kili for the first time.
No photo can do it justice.
