One of the seven continental giants, and with the possible exception of South America’s Aconcagua, the easiest of the big ones to climb, Kilimanjaro is part of the Great Rift Valley complex of lakes and mountains, and the highest freestanding mountain in the world. An average of 25000 climbers a year chance their luck to make it to the summit of Kilimanjaro, with a substantial number of these turning back at lower altitudes.
Despite this Kilimanjaro is a climbable mountain for an average climber of intermediate ability. The proof of this fact is that daily many otherwise un-initiated climbers succeed in reach the fabled Uhuru summit. Another aspect of the popularity of this mountain is the fact that it is situated along an axis of some the finest wildlife conservancies in the world, and moreover is within a country that is nothing less than a fabulous travel destination.
