Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, it is innately
and inexhaustibly symbolic. Writers render it, climbers conquer
it, Africans value it, and at the end of the day its magnetic
singularity remains undiminished. Though speechless wonder
reigns in its presence, the traveler who witnesses Kilimanjaro
Mountain, will talk about it for life.
It is highly advisable to
take the mountain slowly. The thin air is a well-known killer of
impatient weekend climbers, who misjudge their abilities and
ascend too fast. Altitude sickness is common and can be fatal.
No climb is permitted without a guide, and there are six routes
up the mountain with varying degrees of difficulty. Huts are
available at different points along the way, and the final
ascent begins near midnight (so melting snow isn't a problem)
and culminates with a spectacular sunrise at the peak.
