We continue our seven-part video series from Tusker Trail on climbing Kilimanjaro today by taking a look at the mountain itself, and the beginning of the trek to its summit. At 5895 meters (19,341 ft) in height, Kili is the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. That makes for quite an imposing sight when you’re approaching it from the African plains. This clip, narrated by Nat Geo’s Will Lyman, serves as an intro to the climb, and what trekkers can expect on their way up.
