Mt. Kilimanjaro, the "Roof of Africa", at an altitude of 5,895 meters (19,344 feet) is the highest point in Africa. The stunning, flat-topped mountain is also the tallest freestanding mountain in the world and one of the world's largest volcanoes. Situated a few degrees south of the Equator, the unmistakable landmark is the pride of Tanzania and the African continent, and on a clear day, the permanently snow-capped crown can be seen from distances of up to 180 kilometers (112 miles). Kilimanjaro hosts four distinct climate zones from its base, with a diameter of 64 kilometers(40 miles), to its Kibo and Mawenzi peaks. A few day ascent to its summit will take you from African savanna, through tropical rainforests and sparse moorland, to the bare, alpine desert and hanging glaciers of Kilimanjaro's highest point, Uhuru Peak. An unparalleled view is offered from  Uhuru Peak, or the slightly lower peak of Gilman's Point, as the sun rises over a sea of clouds, with the endless plains of the African savanna stretching far below.
