Trekking on the 5896-meter-high “rooftop of Africa,” the highest point in the continent is an experience of a lifetime, but more significantly, everyone can ascend the icy peak if the pace is right, from experienced trekkers to novice fans. First of all, once inside the park, the lower elevations are covered with dense lowland forest, which gives way to alpine meadows as the air gets thinner. Second, the scenery is arid and severe close to the summit, with ice and rocks predominating over an amazing vista of Africa. With this package, you can ascend Mount Kilimanjaro via the Marangu Route, which is the most arduous ascent.
