Probably no other mountain in the world has the same mystique and appeal of Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa at 19,340 ft. (5,900m). It is also the highest mountain on earth that is not part of a mountain range and its snow-capped peak hovers majestically over the African plain. This is a very challenging but rewarding trek!

This is a spectacular walk up the beautiful Sirimon valley away from the main tourist route. The trek passes through a diverse range of vegetation and climate zones, from dense forest to tropical cactus plants to snow covered peaks within a relatively short distance. No technical climbing is necessary to reach Point Lenana, the “walking summit” at 16,400 ft.

  • I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’ve been on treks all over the world with different companies, and this is my 11th trek in Nepal, and the C. H. E. organization and staff are by far the best I’ve ever come across!

    This was a lifetime dream for me and all my expectations were met and more! The country is so beautiful and the people so extraordinary. the staff all work so hard to please and treat you like family with such caring and involvement. Our trip leader Cordelia is a wonderful person, and I was pleasantly surprised by our cook who kept us so well fed. I would go back in a heartbeat!
