High, higher, Kilimanjaro height! Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. And while it’s ‘only’ 236th on the list of highest mountains in the world, there’s quite a lot to say when it comes to Mount Kilimanjaro’s height.

So what exactly is Kilimanjaro Height? Uhuru Peak, the highest point of the mountain, stands tall at 5895 m / 19340 ft. And while this makes it the biggest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro is obviously far from being the highest mountain on earth, an honour that goes to Mount Everest. But… the risk of altitude sickness is much higher while Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, due to how fast most climbers reach the top!  

Is Kilimanjaro Higher Than Everest? Mostly trekkers compare between both the summits; while Everest takes you to the base camps there Kilimanjaro takes you to the top of the Mountain. Everest base camp is one 5364 m above sea level where the highest peak of Kilimanjaro, Uhuru sits at 5,895m, though the peak of Everest is about 8848m.

Is Kilimanjaro The Highest Mountain In The World? Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain on the African continent and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Kilimanjaro has three volcanic cones, Mawenzi, Shira and Kibo. Mawenzi and Shira are extinct but Kibo, the highest peak, is dormant and could erupt again.
