The tour operators pick you at 8.00 a.m. Then, they trek the mountain through the Machame route due to its excellent acclimatization and broader view. Hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro follows hot plains through grasslands, alpine meadows, desert uplands, moorlands, and tropical rainforests.
Visitors with their tour guides leave the gate at 8.00 a.m. to view three volcanic cones, including Kibo, Shira, and Mawenzi. Kibo remains at its highest peak and dormant. The last eruption activity was more than 200 years ago. Tourists enjoy viewing the peaks and the Kibo crater rim. Others record their excitement in the boos stored in the available wooden box at its top. Finally, they learn the history of the mountain, which covers the oldest Frenchman, who climbed the mountain at 87 years.
Tourists arrive at the foot of the mountain at 8.00a.m; to study the cultivated land, heath moorland, arctic summit, rain forest, and the alpine desert. The snowcaps keep diminishing up to 80% of their mass from 1912. Tourists attempt to climb the mountain to the top, aiming to be included among the 25,000 people.
The tour guide will help you learn that the mountain lies 205 miles from the equator in Tanzania. The tour guides explain that the mountain has glaciers at the top. Thus, glaciers shrink and regrow during the ice ages of the planet. Visitors prepare to leave the park at 3.00 p.m.
