Geology of Kilimanjaro :

With 3 volcanic cones namely Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira; Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano that created 3 million years ago. The volcanic activity at the Shira started before 2.5 million years ago and the last important volcano activity was 1.9 million years ago. A broad plateau topped on Shira at 3,800 meters which is a natural caldera. Before the caldera formed it is believed that Shira was 4,900 m or 5,200 m high.

The other peaks Mawenzi and Kibo started erupting about 1 million years ago. Both peaks were separated by Saddle Plateau at 4,400 meters height. Kibo is the largest cone on the mountain and the last activity here was dated to 150,000–200,000 years back. The last major eruption occurred on Kilimanjaro was 360,000 years ago.

Kilimanjaro has a great history of the climbers. There are many climbers in the 19th century tried their best in Mount Kilimanajaro. Here are few f them; The Prussian officer Baron Karl Klaus von der Decken accompanied by English geologist R. Thornton made his 1st attempt. They both tried it in August 1861 but couldn’t go more than 2,500m. In August 1871, Charles New became the first European to reach the snows at the height of 4,000 meters.

In late 1889, the German geology professor Hans Meyer finally reached the top of Kilimanjaro in his 3rd attempt. Austrian mountaineer Ludwig Purtscheller accompanied him and they both spent 16 days above 4,600 m during their Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing.
