According to scientists, now global warming is not responsible for the decreasing glaciers atop Kilimanjaro. You can read their findings here. I couldn’t care less about the reasons but they say the shape of the ice has something to do with the decline and also decreased snowfall. I am not a scientist so this really doesn’t make my day one way or the other. The point is that the glaciers are melting and receding and you should climb the mountain as soon as possible to experience the best views I have ever seen atop the summit of Africa.
