Climb East Africa’s highest peaks—via non-technical and technical routes—in this updated guide to Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya, and more · More than 50 routes, including summit walk-ups and serious technical climbs · Completely updated and expanded descriptions of travel to and from East Africa and the major trekking and climbing destinations · Entire new sections devoted to the standard trekking route on Mount Meru, Kilimanjaro’s nearly 15,000-foot neighboring peak, and the trekking circuit in the Rwenzoris of Uganda, with detailed route descriptions to the three highest summits in the region—Mount Stanley, Mount Speke, and Mount Baker For trekkers or climbers hoping to reach the top of Kilimanjaro—one of the coveted Seven Summits—or challenge themselves on the remote spires of Mount Kenya, or explore East Africa’s lesser-visited areas such as Mount Meru and the Rwenzoris of Uganda, this completely revised guide is ideal. Author Cameron Burns includes everything you need to know to plan a safe and successful visit to the region, including up-to-date trip planning information and prices, tips on transportation and places to stay, as well as the scoop on hiring outfitters and obtaining permits and visas.

Also included are dozens of useful websites for the East African trekker/climber, do’s and don’ts to help you stay safe, hundreds of useful personal observations from the author in the newly-added footnotes, and a handy glossary of several local languages.
