Kilimanjaro the only place you might find glacier in Africa

This route is more used than other routes, but more strenuous and involves camping at basic campsites throughout the trek. The start of this route involves a gradual climb through rain forest, from 1800 to 3000m. The summit attempt is a long day, involving about 14 hours walking, most of it during the night. After summit we descend through Stella Point to Barafu hut Camp and then to overnight at Mweka camp.
