Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira, is a dormant stratovolcano located in northeastern Tanzania. With its 5895 meters, it is the highest mountain on the African continent, the highest single mountain in the world, and one of the highest volcanoes on the planet as well as being one of the seven peaks on the planet. The summit of the volcano is also covered by a perennial glacier (the Rebmann Glacier). It has always been considered one of the most popular destinations for trekking lovers from all over the world. Here there are in fact 6 itineraries that require different skill levels, ranging from those suitable for everyone and therefore also for the less experienced in the field, to the more demanding ones that require greater efforts and therefore more suitable for experts who have better physical preparation. . Most agree that for beginners it is advisable to choose the Lemosho route to the highest peak of Kilimanjaro or Uhuru peak which, even if it reaches almost 6000 meters, generally about 95% of climbers reach it without any difficulties.

Another widely used itinerary that does not require special skills is Marangu, however, good physical preparation and at least the support of a guide and local porters are recommended, as well as the availability of at least 6 days. The Rongai itinerary is also one of the simplest, but it is the least scenic than the others. The paths to climb to the top more easily are those that start from the southern side of the volcano, while the access routes from the northern side are reserved for experienced mountaineers. For example, the Mweka path is the fastest route, but it is steep and dangerous. The same can be said of the Umbwe trail which is mainly used for the rapid descent on the way back. Finally, the Machame trail is one of the most spectacular, but it does not offer many possibilities for shelter. To conclude we must point out that although the climb is not technically as demanding as when climbing the high peaks of the Himalayas or the Andes, the high altitude, low temperature, and occasional strong winds can make this trek difficult and dangerous.
