Way to the roof of Africa

Kilimanjaro is not really a mountain, but a formation constituted by three volcanoes; the Shira, the Mawenzi and the Kibo, the youngest and highest reaching a height of 5,895m. The Kibo is covered by a thick layer of ice about 60 m thick. His ascension represents the challenge of touching the roof of Africa.
