In the heart of the national park of the same name, the legendary Mount Kilimanjaro, its summit covered with snow (although for how much longer is uncertain), rises up from the African plain to an altitude of 5 895m. If you're planning on tackling the legendary ascent of this extinct volcano, then make sure you bring plenty of warm clothes. The foot of the mountain is surrounded by fields, tropical forests and grassland.
