Uhuru Peak stands at 19,336 feet and is Mount Kilimanjaro’s highest peak. Uhuru lies on the highest summit on Kibo’s crater rim.
Structurally, Kilimanjaro is a large stratovolcano; two of its three peaks (Mawenzi and Shira) are extinct while the highest peak, Kibo, is classified as dormant last erupting 150,000 to 200,000 years ago.
Uhuru Peak can be accessed from various routes. These routes vary in degree of difficulty, traffic and scenic beauty, with the least difficult being the Marangu and Rongai route and the most difficult, the Machame, Shira and Limosho routes.
