Although the IMax movie is not available everywhere in the world, the book is, and it's of amazing beauty!

Kilimanjaro is the highest point of Africa and therefore one of the "7 summits". But even without this statistical feature it is a place you should have visited to know what others mean when they call it a great place...

Well David Breashears (know from the Everest IMAX and his book) has shot a new IMAX film on Kilimanjaro and this is the accompanying book.

Much information about the historic exploration of Eastern Africa and it's majestic summit; geological and biological contributions mixed with full page pictures and the trip report of the climb along the scenic Machame/Mweka route (with a variation through the Western breach).

Kilimanjaro rises almost 5000m above the plains and offer climatic zones from the savannah to alpine glaciers, although the latter are melting quickly due to the global warming. Unique flora and fauna on the border of Tanzania and Kenya.

'Kili' is one of the treasures of our earth and this book shows why. Too heavy for your backpack, but not to be missed on your coffeetable.
