WIth the world’s wildlife diminishing, as more and more land becomes developed, it is not hard to see why many people seek to remove themselves from urban living and experience nature directly. Hiking, trekking, and mountain climbing are some of the best ways to explore the natural wonders of the world. In fact, there are a lot of destinations in the world that people visit, for the sole purpose of exploring the landscape, on foot. One example is Kilimanjaro, where visitors come from all over the world, to make the trek up the mountain. Kilimanjaro is a unique site, and you are sure to have a memorable trip, if you decide to visit and climb it. That being said, choosing a good guide service will make your trip a lot better. Alpenglow Expeditions is an excellent choice, when it comes to Kilimanjaro climbing guides.
Though there are mountains that are more rugged and dangerous, to climb, you will never see a mountain that is more awe-inspiring than Kilimanjaro. To say the least, there is a lot that make it a unique mountain. It is actually composed of three peaks, and it is not part of any mountain range. This is unique, insofar as most of the famous mountains that avid climbers often visit are part of a major mountain range. This adds to the visual awesomeness of Kilimanjaro, as it simply rises out of the landscape, creating much more contrast than you would see with many of the other large mountains, which are part of mountain ranges. Another way in which it is different from other famous mountains is the fact that anyone, as long as they meet the health requirements, can climb Kilimanjaro. This is partly due to the fact that Kilimanjaro does not require any vertical scaling of the mountain to reach the summit, which means you can simply hike, all the way there. That being said, the trek is very difficult, exhausting, and even dangerous, at times. You must be healthy enough and have the determination to make it to the summit.
There are several routes that lead to the summit of Kilimanjaro, and there is no universal consensus, as to the best one, of them all. That being said, there are some qualitative and quantitative differences, among them. Many guides services focus on taking the routes that are the shortest and quickest, and they make a point of reaching the summit, as quickly as they possibly can. This is not the way they do things at Alpenglow Expeditions, as that is not a very enjoyable or enriching experience. The route they utilize, in order to get their clients to the summit, is a bit longer than some of the others, but it is the most visually astounding. The beautiful sights you will see, while on your trek up the mountain, will stay with you forever. Also, you can gain knowledge to use, if you ever decide to climb again, as their Kilimanjaro guides educate you on climbing techniques, along the way.
