Book Description

26 Feb 2013
Mount Kilimanjaro is the African continent's highest mountain and the world's tallest freestanding mountain. It is a geological wonder, formed, sculpted, and molded by the natural forces of volcanic fire and glacial ice. At 19,340 feet (5,895 metres) high, Kilimanjaro towers above the Great Rift Valley and lies 3 degrees south of the Equator, on the northern border of Tanzania, close to southeast Kenya.

Kilimanjaro is an accessible mountain that one can climb without the help of any technical equipment. The ascent starts from the cultivated lower slopes with dry blistering heat, through a lush, wet rainforest jungle, into heath and moorland zones, all the way up to the desolate alpine desert landscape and the steep, exposed arctic summit area, where one will experience breathtaking views of the legendary snows of Kilimanjaro.

Moushabeck and Schulz invite you along as they explore and climb Mount Kilimanjaro. In this book they capture the essence of this majestic mountain with over 200 full-colour photographs and an engaging and entertaining narrative that smoothly ties together personal observations with the mountain's history, its people, and its ecology.

Product Description

Review

Blazing with photographs as radiant as the African sun, this superbly illustrated personal account of an odyssey to the ice-bound summit of the world's tallest free-standing mountain is as vastly rewarding and enriching as the journey itself. You sense yourself hiking alongside the author, wheezing and gasping every step of the way! --Christopher P. Baker, author of Mi Moto Fidel: Motorcycling through Castro's Cuba

If you've dreamed of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro but have never had the chance, Michel Moushabeck and Hiltrud Schulz will take you there. If you've already climbed the mountain, they will take you back. But either way, they will inspire you to start packing your gear to set off for East Africa, a place they bring to life through vivid descriptions of the land and people and dozens of dramatic photographs. The climb is exhilarating, excruciating, and exhausting, but they come out singing, and you will too. --Larry Habegger, executive editor, Travelers' Tales

About the Author

Michel Moushabeck, a writer, editor, publisher and musician, and Hiltrud Schulz, a freelance travel photographer, have been hiking together for nearly a decade. They live in Leverett, Massachusetts.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of valuable information at a good price 14 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
I bought this book a couple of weeks after returning from a successful ascent of Kilimanjaro. It is well written and contains all the excellent photographs I failed to capture on my trip. The description of the climb,the difficulties encountered and the elation of achieving the summit are covered in great detail. This book is excellent value for money and I would recommend it to anyone contemplating the trip.

4.0 out of 5 stars Memories of Kilimanjaro 23 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
I ordered this book for my partner as we both climbed Kilimanjaro for charity in December last year and also my partner is currently doing a photography course.

The book provides excellent memories of the climb and would also be great to purchase before attempting the summit.
If I had any criticism I would say the photographs are slightly predictable and I was expecting slightly more from them.

All in all though a great account of Kilimanjaro and what to expect.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice souvenir 8 Aug 2010
By Kathryn
Format:Paperback
This is a nice paperback souvenir book after climbing Kili. It was much cheaper than a lot of the British books that were available locally in Tanzania - so I am glad I waited until I got home to find it!
