From Kilimanjaro to Kinabalu

In 2014 an old friend came up with the idea of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. We’ve still no idea what possessed him to come up with this idea, nor what compelled seven more of us to join him. But join him we did. And subsequently spent eight days hacking around Africa’s highest point.

Eighteen months later and some of that same group then set off to climb Mount Kinabalu in Malaysian Borneo. And of course I had to write about both experiences. And in the course of that I realised that I’d also visited numerous other mountains, volcanoes and things of geological interest over the years.

This then is, or will be, the chapters that make up From Kilimanjaro to Kinabalu – And a Few Other Things in Between, a strictly amateur wander around some of the world’s most notable – and some lesser known – mountains and volcanoes.
