Views of Kilimanjaro

Mt Kilimanjaro. The roof of Africa. The largest freestanding mountain in the world. A marvel and a beauty.

I climbed Mt Kilimanjaro and it was amazing to see it from so many angles and so many views.

 

Here I will share with you 5 gorgeous photos from 5 different points of the mountain. Each one more breathaking and inspirational then the next.

My first beautiful view of Kili from the plane

A view of the mountain from our hotel roof, the day we were to climb it

KIBO peak. Our first views of it from the actual mountain, at Simba camp on morning of Day 2

 

Good morning Uluru, wait no it's KILI! with the sunrise on it, it looked just like the red dessert rock of Australia. Day 3 - Kikelelwa camp

The most incredible to stop on Day 3 and have a rest - it's wonderful to see where you are heading! To be able to visualise the goal

I have to say one of my favourite things about doing the climb was seeing the mountain from so many new and unexpected views. Sights you can only see when you are climbing her beautiful faces.

 

From 16th September -22nd September 2011, I Climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW!  I did this in honour of my Grandpa who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2008. I was in Africa when I found out and I said at the time I would one day do this for him, in his memory! We are raising money for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW to raise awareness and the necessary funds for prevention of the disease that affects so many. Dementia is the third leading cause of death in Australia, after heart disease and stroke. 

You can still help me reach my $10.000 target by donating to my online fundraising page:
