A cluster of nested craters occupies the summit of Kilimanjaro volcano. This view looks ESE to Mawenzi, a dissected stratovolcano that is one of three forming the broad Kilimanjaro massif. The low ridge above the crater complex at the left is part of the steep-sided summit icecap. The coalescing volcanoes of Mawenzi, the central summit cone of Kibo, and Shira to the NW form the elongated Kilimanjaro massif, Africa's highest peak.
