What is the Lava Tower?

The Lava tower on Kilimanjaro is an old plug at 4,600m that is also known as the Shark’s tooth. It’s a left-over of the active-volcanic days.

The surroundings at the Lava Tower consist of a high altitude desert. There is no vegetation, only pools of rocks, scree and dust as far as the eye can see.

You’ll need a few warm layers on this part of the journey as it can be prone to cold winds, ice and mist.
