Riassunto: At 5896 metres (nearly four miles) above sea level, the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest point on earth to which you can walk. This is a mountain of contrasts and extremes. You start from tropical rain forest and finish in arctic conditions, passing through a landscape formed by ice and fire. Yet any well-prepared walker with enough determination may be able to reach 'the roof of Africa'. The greatest challenge is the huge altitude gain. The author's advice on preventing altitude sickness is based on medical research, and on her own experience of three ascents by different routes. The book includes: drop-down map showing Marangu and Machame routes (three panels); practical advice on planning and preparation, including route choice and altitude profiles; advice on choosing equipment, and packing for easy retrieval; medical advice on how to prevent and manage altitude symptoms; background on the geology, history, habitats and wildlife; full colour throughout, with over 50 photographs.
Dall'editore: This book is robust and lightweight (175 grams), with a waterproof cover. The mapping was specially commissioned, and all information has been carefully researched at first-hand. The book is lavishly illustrated with 58 professional quality photographs.
