At a height of 5,895 m above sea level, Mt. Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain, and the highest mountain on Earth it is possible to climb with no technical mountaineering experience. It is this accessibility that makes Kilimanjaro such an attractive destination, with 25,000 people attempting the climb every year; it is also what attracts people with absolutely no experience of climbing or high altitudes: people like Chris Baker. Join Chris as he learns exactly what it takes to climb one of the world's highest mountains; it is a journey that will push him to his limits as he battles against exhaustion and altitude sickness. After plunging him into the culture shock of Tanzanian life, it will whisk him from the equatorial rainforests of Africa to a world that he never knew existed, a world of unimaginable beauty and outright hostility. He will watch as his expedition comes perilously close to disaster, lose the sight in one of his eyes and lick a glacier. But will he make it to the summit?
