What’s your most unforgettable New Year’s Eve experience? With the upcoming new year, you’re likely contemplating unique ways to commence the year with grandeur. Following the lively Christmas festivities and brimming with good cheer, it’s rejuvenating to venture into an unfamiliar and secluded environment to reflect on the past year and forge plans for the upcoming one. Consider seriously starting 2024 by ascending Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa.
Take on the challenge and climb up 5,895 meters. You’ll go through five different climate zones and celebrate the new year on the Roof of Africa. This once-in-a-lifetime journey will surely make you see yourself and the world in a whole new way.
Kilimanjaro, located in Tanzania, is a famous mountain that’s a dormant volcano. Don’t worry, though – the last big eruption happened hundreds of thousands of years ago. Besides being the tallest mountain in Africa, it’s also the highest free-standing mountain globally, meaning it’s not part of a mountain range. Picture yourself welcoming the new year in 2024 at its peak, watching the sunrise over the stunning plains below.
Mount Kilimanjaro is made up of three volcanoes – Shira, Mawnzi, and Kibo. Climbing it feels like stepping into a nature documentary. With five distinct ecosystems, you’ll experience a unique adventure, from hiking through an untouched rainforest to seeing lava towers and exotic animals. You might even meet and chat with indigenous tribes people on the mountain. All this while you’re walking above the clouds, gazing down at the lush savanna below.
MT. KILIMANJARO DIFFICULTY
Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro usually takes five to 11 days, depending on the route. There are seven established routes, each with varying length, difficulty, and views. If you prefer a somewhat easier route with a good chance of reaching the summit, consider the Lemosho Route. It has a more gradual climb, making it suitable for those who may not be experienced climbers but still dream of welcoming the new year from the top of the world.
