The Fearsome Kilimanjaro Mountain

In Roman mythology Vulcan was god of fire. Hence the name of the current volcanic craters from which occasionally comes out red-hot mass, which is called lava. They are there to demonstrate the full power of nature and to remind us what is in the interior of our planet. Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak on the African continent. It is located in north eastern Tanzania, near the city of Mombasa and the border of this country withKenya. The highest volcanic crater in the world is on the top of mountain Kilimanjaro. But there are not one but three volcanic craters on the mountain. Among them the biggest, highest and most famous one is Kibo.
