KILIMANJARO NATONAL PARK

The town of Moshi is close to Kilimanjaro National Park, which is readily reached by air or by road from Arusha. The surrounding montane forest of Mount Kilimanjaro covers 652 square miles (1,688 square kilometers) of that total.

Kilimanjaro National Park is home to Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa and the tallest free-standing mountain in the entire globe. The peak’s elevation is 19,341 feet (5,895 meters), making it the mountain’s highest point. One of Mount Kilimanjaro’s three volcanic cones is the Kibo cone, which also contains Uhuru peak.

The region between the base and summit of Kilimanjaro National Park and its surrounds is unlike other national parks in that practically every ecosystem is represented there. On the route up the mountain, there is farmed land, a rainforest, heath, moorland, and alpine desert. 

The largest mountain on each continent, Mount Kilimanjaro, is the most approachable of the “Seven Summits.” The most popular mountain to climb is Mount Kilimanjaro.

There are seven authorized paths to the top of the peak. The Marangu route, which includes communal huts, is the most popular because it is the shortest and easiest to access. Because they can’t adapt to the altitude, the majority of people don’t reach the summit. A 7-year-old child and an 89-year-old woman, respectively, had to climb the mountain.
