Standing at 19,341 feet above sea level, Mt. Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in the world that does not require any mountaineering skills, specialized equipment, or previous experience. However, to climb Mount Kilimanjaro should not be taken lightly. Reaching the summit is physically and mentally challenging, testing the endurance of even the most physically fit Trekkers. Unfortunately Altitude Sicknesses cause many to abandon their Trek before reaching Uhuru Peak.
