The glaciers on the summit of Kilimanjaro are disappearing. A recent study has shown that there is now 85% less glaciers on the summit of Kilimanjaro then there was in 1912. The glaciers are melting and crumbling away whilst at the same time experiencing reduced levels of snowfall. With these factors in mind, it is believed that the summit of Kilimanjaro will be snow-free in between 15 - 30 years, which is tragic. It's not certain what is creating this change in weather patterns but some suggestions are that it is as a result of global warming or it could be due to the reduced levels of rainfall as a result of the deforestation of the rain forest around the base of the mountain. Whatever the reason certain of that charm will be lost as the snow and ice disappear, so to trek Kilimanjaro amongst the snow and ice, please go sooner rather than later.
