Amin Dehghan, MA student of civil engineering at Isfahan Islamic Azad University, has conquered the 5895-meter summit of Kilimanjaro, the Roof of Africa.

The highest and the most famous mountain in Africa and the seventh highest mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro is of great significance and attraction to mountaineers.

According to Azad News Agency (ANA), regarding his achievement, Dehghan has stated that “on November 22, I caught a flight from Tehran to Qatar and then to Tanzania. After entering Kilimanjaro, we hiked 2700 meters before we reached the first hut. We spent a night there and then continued our ascent the next day. After hiking another 1000 meters, we reached the second hut and spent the night there.”

“After another 1000-meter hike the next morning, we reached the third hut around evening. We rested there until 11 PM and then set off on our journey to the peak. Finally, we succeeded in conquering the beautiful summit of Kilimanjaro at 6:15 AM the next day, while the temperature was -10 degrees centigrade and it was impossible to get there without appropriate clothing and equipment”, he added.

Dehghan also conquered the 5895-meter summit of Mount Elbrus, the Roof of Europe, 3 months ago.
