Au Naturale

Okay, here are the official statistics:

Africa's highest peak soars to an altitude of 19,340 ft. (5895 meters). The snow-capped Kibo summit is only 3 degrees south of the equator and only 181 miles from a tropical coast.

Kilimanjaro is the World's highest freestanding mountain and dormant volcanoes. It boasts the highest peaks attainable by non-expert climbers -- any healthy person from 10 to 80 years old who is able to walk 20 km a day can make it ot the summit.

But hot damn that is one helluva big massive mountain, and if it's on your list of "Things to do before I die" I suggest you start making the plans for the climb soon. It's no joke just how fast the "Snows of Kilimanjaro" are melting.
