There are tremendous views of the ice cliffs inside the crater and also across to Mawenzi summit and 'the saddle'. Now on easier terrain, we follow the crater rim for a further hour, once at Uhuru Peak you have reached the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa! The descent is invigorating - congratulations!
