Kilimanjaro (5,895m)

Tanzania, Africa

September 12 – September  23, 2008 | Summit Date : September 21, 2008 | Rongai Route

YPO International Expedition Team : Leader Tony van Marken

Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcanic mountain in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world.

The Rongai route ascends Kilimanjaro from the north-eastern side of the mountain, along the border between Tanzania and Kenya. This route retains a sense of unspoilt wilderness and offers a different perspective on Kilimanjaro by approaching it from the north.
