Standing vigil over Tanzania’s untamed landscapes, the world’s tallest free-standing mountain hails mountaineers and nature enthusiasts from all over the world. Kilimanjaro ascends above the clouds, standing at an impressive 5 895 meters (19 340 feet), offering an array of diverse habitats such as lush montane forests and an alpine desert, which concede to sparkling vistas of ice and snow. Despite its awesome height, Kilimanjaro is a relatively gentle hike; however, guides recommend basic fitness, as the main challenge is posed by the altitude. Those wanting to explore the mountain need not climb to the very top as special excursions cater for short hikes and picnic lunches on the slopes.
