Question of the Month
Is there still much ice and snow on Kilimanjaro?
Yes. Ice and snow can be found year-round on the mountain's upper reaches. There are still glaciers, but the ice fields are greatly diminished. Despite the fact that the glaciers have receded, they remain, for now, an overpowering and unforgettable sight.
