  • 2. The last major volcanic emanation from Kibo happened more than 360,000 years earlier.
  • 3. The last volcanic development of Mount Kilimanjaro happened 200 years back, realizing the powder pit that climbers today can see from Uhuru Peak.
  • 4. Since 1912, Kilimanjaro has lost 82% of its ice top, and since 1962 it has lost 55% of its exceptional ice sheets – all as a result of ecological change.
  • 5. There are seven specialist routes on Mount Kilimanjaro, six of which are used for climb (Machame, Umbwe, Marangu, Shira, Lemosho, Rongai), and one of which is used for drop just (Mweka).
  • 6. Around 35,000 people try climbing Kilimanjaro consistently, of which simply 66% are commonly compelling. This is by and large a direct result of altitude-related issues, convincing a couple of climbers to turn back.
