Why Take a Mount Kilimanjaro Tour over Other Mountain Tours
Mount Kilimanjaro is regarded as one of the best climbing mountains in the world. It stands at 5,895 m, and as a free standing mountain range, it is the largest in the entire world. You don’t need to be an expert climber to conquer this mountain. People come from across the world to see what sights Mount Kili has to offer, including the wildlife, scenery, and the three volcanoes that make up its structure. The three volcanoes are a sight to be seen. Kibo, Mawenzi and Shira range from 3962 m to 5894 m in height. They are pretty amazing to look at to say the least. When you climb Mount Kili, you will travel though rain forests, moorland paths, the alpine desert, and you will even see harsh arctic glaciers. Unlike other mountains that consist of a single ecological zone, Mount Kili presents five, so the climber can travel through monkey ridden rain forests to the icy summit within a matter of days.
Many people choose Mt. Kili over other mountains because it has so much to offer. On the tour you can experience the entire essence of Africa in a week by making this climb. At the bottom of the mountain you will experience a world of wildlife, including the amazing sight of the wildebeest migrations across the Mara. You will also spot tropical boubous, colobus monkeys, elephants, and even buffalos. When you reach the higher sides of the mountain, you will spot mountain hawks, ravens, and sun birds that hover around the cliff sides.
Much More Than a Mountain
Mount Kili is so much more than a mountain. Those who climb it regard it as a spiritual journey, and a personal advancement in their lives. It is an uplifting experience seeing the African plains from a bird’s eye view, and you can truly feel on top of the world when at the summit. Some routes are different to others. Some harness the beauty of the mountain with tracks being covered with mountain flowers and wild bushes, while others are for the more experienced climbers with rocky outcrops and harsher terrains. Whether you are climbing to challenge yourself physically, to achieve a life goal, or to simply see the sights that the mountain has to offer, Mount Kili is certainly a life changing experience.
