A guide on How to Trek Mount Kilimanjaro

Mountain Kilimanjaro is found in Tanzania and stands at a height of 19,341 feet or 5,895 meters. This snow-capped mountain is the highest peak on the African continent as well as the highest free-standing mountain in the world. This is the highest walkable mountain in the world, and to reach its summit (peak), you have to walk through its five different climate zones which include the rainforest, alpine desert, and the glacial Arctic. Although mountain Kilimanjaro can be summited without any special equipment or unique mountaineering training, I have to mention that it is not easy to summit the ‘Roof of Africa!’

How much does it cost to climb Kilimanjaro?

Briefly, it does not take spending a fortune for a safe, comfortable and successful climb. However, the price below USD 1600 should alert you, as it is the first signal that your tour operator forsakes basic safety measures and hires semi-qualified (or unqualified altogether) guides and porters, who agreed to work for a pay far below the market average.

Which route to choose for hiking?

Those seeking seclusion, scenic value and good acclimatization transition should consider Lemosho or Northern Traverse. A pocket-friendly and picturesque Machame provides good acclimatization transition, though it is a bit crowded during the high season.
