Kilimanjaro
Summit of Africa
Jacquetta Megarry

4 1/2” x 5 3/4” • 98 pages • color photographs and diagrams throughout
ISBN 9781898481522 • paperback/waterproof • $16.95

Many people have written accounts of their own successful completion of the seven summits, but nobody has before published the practical details of how to prepare yourself, how to organize and book an expedition, how to choose your route, what level of fitness you really need and how to prevent and manage altitude sickness. Written, edited and designed by climbers for climbers, these books tell the truth about what it’s really like on the mountain, with step-by-step detail on each route. Lavishly illustrated and in full color, they are both beautiful and collectable, making ideal gifts.

Kilimanjaro is many people’s first choice of the seven summits, but at 19,340 ft this mountain should not be underestimated. On a hike of contrasts and extremes, you walk from tropical rain forest into arctic conditions through a landscape formed by ice and fire. The author describes in detail the four main trekking routes (Marangu, Machame and Rongai, and Lemosho). She also describes the ascent of Mt. Meru, a recommended acclimatization hike.
