If someone suggests an excursion into the mountain ranges in Africa and Tanzania specifically, images of Mount Kilimanjaro immediately come to the mind. Its highest point stands at 5,895 feet over sea level. It's the highest mountain in Africa that is frequently known as "The Roof Of Africa".
It's about 4,900m from the ground and climbing is a top priority list for many trekkers. Most first-timers are unprepared for what's to come or what their trekking journey will be about at the time of departure.So in this case ,it is a good option to plan Mount Kilimanjaro hiking tours in advance for getting best experience.
Kilimanjaro is a huge stratovolcano that has three distinct cones of volcanic activity. The three cones comprise Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira, Kibo being the most awe-inspiring. Uhuru Peak on Kibo at 589m is the tallest peak in Africa and is the place that most trekkers would like to be.
However, the inside of the cones are unexplored because of the lack of erosion. The exterior of the cones is that is covered by snow. It's composed mostly of of volcanic lava that have been solidified with certain pyroclastic rocks, which can be found in a variety of volcanic areas. An ongoing eruption that lasted for millions of years submerged most of the earlier geological structures, with the exception of the stratum, which is sedimentary rock.
The weather conditions of Kilimanjaro are heavily affected by the elevation of the mountain and the trade winds that blow from the equatorial region and trading winds, which can be against trade. Winds that are upslope or downslope are common in the mountains and you'll constantly be in the midst of them, regardless of where you're located and the southern region being more intensive than the northern region.
