The climb follows the Shira Rout, the longest rout of the many routs that lead to the top of this mountain. The location, elevation and geological history of Mount Kilimanjaro make it a very interesting climb. Mount Kilimanjaro is a volcano located just south of the Equator, putting it in the Tropical climate zone. The climb starts at an elevation of just over 6,000 feet above sea level, were you climb through a thick Tropical Rain Forest. As you go up in elevation the vegetation zones are changing, as a response to the change of climate zones, which go from Tropical to Temperate to Tundra at the top.
At 19,340 feet above sea level you are over looking the active ash pit of the Reusch Crater surrounded by glaciers.
