Mt. Kilimanjaro is the free-standing and #1 highest mountain in Africa at 5,895 meters above the sea level. But it isn’t a mountain in an old sense. It is a huge stratovolcano that started forming about a million years past and is self-possessed of several coatings of hardened volcanic ash, lava, pumice as well as tephra — fragmental substantial that is the outcome from a volcanic eruption.
Mt. Kilimanjaro has three standing volcanic pinecones which build up to it: Kibo is a Peak; Mawenzi at 16,893 feet (5,149 meters); and Shira at 13,000 feet (3,962 meters). Whereas Uhuru Peak is the highest peak on Kibo’s crater edge.
