Exploring Mount Kilimanjaro

 It is rare that a mountain gains enough popularity to be referenced by just its first name. Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania and the highest peak in all of Africa. With the summit at a frightening hight of 4,90o meters from its ground base. Comprised of three distinct volcanic cones Kibo, Mawenzi and Shira mount Kilimanjaro is nothing less than a geographical wonder. The origin of the mountain's name is a mystery in itself with multiple theories created to explain the origin behind that majestic name. Some suggest that its a play on words with the word Klima meaning mountain and Jaro means Caverns. Being the highest peak in all of Africa it's no wonder that many individuals have tried to scale this legendary summit. The oldest person reported to have reached the very top of the Uhuru peak was 86 year old Angela Vorobevaon the 29th of October 2015 another record of the fastest ascent and roundtrip goes to Swiss-Ecuadorian mountain guide  Karl Egloff. Kilimanjaro is not only a natural wonder but also a major source of revenue for the country generating a  total revenue of 51 million us dollars in 2013 and brings an influx of people to visit the famous mountain on a yearly basis.
