Kilimanjaro an ancient volcano now lying dormant except for some tell tale signs of fumaroles in the ash pit. Two other peaks, namely Mawenzi and Shira, flank the main peak of Kibo., these peaks form spectacular photographic backdrops when viewed from various vantage points along the routes to the summit.
There are several routes to the summit. Although none of these hiking routes requires mountaineering skills, hiking to the "roof of Africa" is physically and mentally demanding and should not be under estimated.
