There are 3 craters on Mt. Kilimanjaro – Shira, Kibo and Mawenzi. Some geologists claim that all the peaks were once above 5,000 meters. Shira was first to become extinct, then Mawenzi, and now Kibo is the only one active. Kibo is a dormant active volcano, you can smell the strong sulphur that comes from the inner ash pit.
Uhuru peak is the highest summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. The highest peak on Mawenzi is Hans Meyer Point, which can only be reached by mountaineers.
