Mount Kilimanjaro is organized by Mystic Adventure Holidays This 7-day trek up the Machame Route of Mount Kilimanjaro will be challenging both mentally and physically. But it's called "The Rooftop of Africa" for a reason, and the top's views will make it all worth it. When you are climbing Kilimanjaro you will make it to a point at a height of 5.895 meters altitude above sea level. It has been the tough guy for the last 3 million years. For the last 130 years, the mountain has been making the lives of climbers extremely difficult, but so worthwhile. With the right preparations and having the right questions answered you can make it to the highest summit on the African continent. Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the Seven Summits and although it is considered to be one of the easier ones, climbing it is by no means a walk in the park. Are you ready to climb Kilimanjaro? This is all you need to know.
