Avinash Van Dort made headlines last month as the youngest Sri Lankan to climb Mount Kilimanjaro at age 17. Avinash made it to Uhuru Peak – Mount Kilimanjaro’s highest point – on 10th October 2022 proudly carrying the Sri Lankan flag to the top. Located in Tanzania, 5895m above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s tallest mountain and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. This snow-capped peak of Africa is a dormant volcano found inside the Kilimanjaro National Park of Tanzania and is one of the Seven Summits of the World. While climbing Kilimanjaro is not known to be a difficult hike, the altitude and the rate of ascent has presented itself as a challenge to many.
