Mountain bike Kilimanjaro
At 5 895m, Mt Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa and the highest free standing mountain in the world. Mt Kilimanjaro is located close to the Equator, where you can hike more than 60km, gain 4 000m in altitude, traverse rain forest, moorland, alpine desert, snow fields and ice cliffs in less than 7 days.
Biking up Kilimanjaro is a new concept and to date only few mountain bikers have ever managed to successfully bike up Kilimanjaro on mountain bikes. Of these, only a small number made it to the summit unassisted, by cycling, pushing or even carrying their bikes during some stages, without any assistance from our porters or guides, before starting a mighty roller coaster ride of 3 000m downhill cycling.
