At 5895 metres (19,341ft) Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain. Yet with no mountaineering skills necessary to reach the summit, even non-climbers can experience the thrill of climbing one of the world’s greatest peaks. Taking you from the dusty plains of East Africa through jungle and moorland to the glacier-clad summit, this is one of the most beautiful and challenging treks there is.
The most authoritative and detailed guide to climbing Africa's highest mountain.
For the 4th edition
* The routes have been walked again, both on Kilimanjaro and Meru, to check that the descriptions are still accurate.
* Everything has had a thorough update including the guides to the cities and towns and the review of the trekking agencies.
* The Shira Plateau Route has been walked and added.
* Routes covered on 35 detailed walking maps in the proven Trailblazer style; all walking times are indicated along with points of interest and gradients. We cover what other walking guides leave out – comprehensive details of where to stay and where to eat along the way in gateway city guides.
