Product Description

The Kibo Peak volcanic cone, renamed Uhuru Peak upon Tanzania's independence in 1964, of Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest point in Africa, and at 5895m, the entire mountain itself is the highest free-standing mountain in the world. The other two cones, Mawenzi and Shira, are 11km and 16km from the summit, and linked by a number of trails. Though Uhuru Peak can be reached simply by walking, hikers regularly underestimate the effects of cold and altitude, and attempt the round trip in much less than the recommended 7-8 days.

Our model of Kilimanjaro include all three major peaks, numerous deep rilles on the south slopes, and many other details. In area, it starts just outside of the towns of Moshi and Marangu and extends North to include the Kenyan town of Oloitokitok, just across the border. The 10cm models exhibit details such as the rim of the Reusch Ash Pit and a half-dozen volcanic craters and mounds Southeast of Mawenzi. Even the 7.5cm model has an easily-detectable summit ridge on the South side of the 3km wide Kibo crater.

Because we believe in delivering the most accurate models available, we also do not exaggerate the vertical dimension. This may make Kilimanjaro seem insignificant at first glance. But due to the mountain's massive scale, this model covers the largest land area of any TinyMtn offering: 41km (25 miles) on a side. This is truly a massive mountain. Hold Kilimanjaro in your hand and we are confident that you will sense its grandeur.

Model scale is 1:553400
Model covers an area approximately 41.5 by 41.5 km
Altitudes covered: 1049m to 5895m
There is never any vertical exaggeration in TinyMtn models.

This TinyMtn model is in Shapeways' "Ceramic" material, which consists of 3D-printed clay with binder, which is then hand-glazed and fired. When you receive the model it will be ready for display. "Ceramic" models are understandably brittle, even more than either the "Sandstone" or "White Strong and Flexible" models. You can get it wet, leave it outside, and you don't need to seal it. Read more about this beautiful material here.

TinyMtn models have been optimized for specific materials, and are not offered in other materials for strength or cost reasons. If you need one in another material, please click the links above or contact us and we'll try to accommodate your request.
