The Uhuru Peak – Mount Kilimanjaro’s Highest Point

The main aim of the thousands of travelers, tourists and mountain climbers who visit the Kilimanjaro each year is to reach the Uhuru Peak.

Perched on the Kibo volcano cone, at an elevation of 5,895 meters above sea level, Uhuru peak is the summit of the tallest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. Uhuru is a Kiswahili word for Freedom. The name was given to the peak after Tanganyika, now Tanzania got its independence.

Even though anyone can climb the Kilimanjaro, skilled or not skilled, one still needs some careful training and planning to increase their chances of reaching the top. There are 7 different routes on Kilimanjaro one can use to reach Uhuru Peak in company of experienced guides and porters to help you carry your equipment.

Reaching Uhuru peak takes several days (6-8 days) depending on the route you use. It is a challenging but rewarding great experience to those who make it. Some experienced athletes and climbers have reached the summit in just hours.

As there are no animals or vegetation at the Uhuru peak because of the harsh climatic conditions of the Arctic climatic zone (high winds and no rainfall), the successful trekkers/hikers are rewarded by the breathtaking views at the roof of Africa, with clear skies they can see a beautiful sunrise, the glaciers of Kilimanjaro and the view of the ash pit.

Physical and mental preparedness are key to making it to the Uhuru peak. Pack some snacks, energy bars and always have enough drinking water on you. You need it for acclimatization. Do all the necessary to maximize your enjoyment while you climb the Kilimanjaro.
