Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, one of the 'top 10 endangered attractions in the world' by

Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania []

Located in the Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania, the Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcanic mountain, with its three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. It is the highest mountain in Tanzania and in Africa on the whole, and the highest free-standing mountain in the world at 5,895 meter (19,341 feet) above sea level. The mountain is well known for the ice cap and snow on one of its summits, Kibo, but the glaciers are rapidly disappearing, for which the main reason is considered to be global warming. In addition, many people are rushing to climb the mountain, accelerating the melting of ice and snow. Experts said that more than 80 percent of the ice cap has disappeared since the early 1900s and it is predicted that the whole ice cap will disappear completely by 2033. Then we can only enjoy the once magnificent scenery on pretty postcards.
