Kilimanjaro Lava Tower (GC25W5D) is an EarthCache three million years in the making. KDubs created this EarthCache and two others on the mountain. Kilimanjaro Lava Tower (GC25W5D), Kilimanjaro Climate Zones (GC1X8Ao) and Kilimanjaro Glacial Sublimation (GC29PKY) all wait for visitors to answer their EartheCache questions.
Kilimanjaro’s summit reaches 19,342 feet (5895 meters) into the clouds. The Eastern African mountain rose about three million years ago during the formation of the Great Right Valley. Kilimanjaro Lava Tower (GC25W5D) requires you to answer two questions about this rock tower, from one of the three volcanoes which comprise the mountain.
Kilimanjaro Climate Zones (GC1X8A0) asks you to take a photo in each of the five climate zone on the mountain.
Kilimanjaro Glacial Sublimation (GC29PKY) challenges you to explore the fading glaciers of the mountain. You need to answer three questions and provide a photo.
