Climbing the tallest mountain in Africa is not your average adventure. In fact, it can be life changing. On October 1, 2017, Patryce Hodges, Blaze Bhence, and Diana Bosetti of Cypress, California, summited Mount Kilimanjaro (19,340 feet / 5,895 meters) via the 7-day Lemosho Route (adventureswithinreach.com/tanzania/kilimanjaro/overview.php?trip=7-day-Lemosho-Route). Mt. Kilimanjaro, located three degrees south of the equator in northeastern Tanzania, is the tallest mountain in Africa and the highest freestanding mountain in the world.
