Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and fourth highest of the seven summits, it’s considered the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, rising 19,341 feet (5895) meters from base to summit. Kilimanjaro is composed of three distinct volcanic cones. Kibo 19,341 feet, Mawenzi 16,867 feet and Shira 13000 feet, Uhuru peak is the highest summit on Kibo’s crater rim.
