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.

Kilimanjaro is truly a massive mountain, but its base is very wide and not as steep as other high peaks. The standard TinyMtn model of Kilimanjaro includes much of the base, and as such is 41km (25 miles) on a side; but to cut costs, this Explorer series focuses on only the central 14km (the summit plateau by itself is 2km by 3km). At this scale, the mountain's retreating glaciers, which once covered the plateau, are clearly visible, along with the summit ridge and Southern canyons.

The Explorer series of TinyMtn models is designed to break our usual impression of mountains. We generally see mountains one at a time, from a distance, and from the ground. While all TinyMtn models give you a fresh perspective on any one peak, the Explorer series presents mountains in identical scale, and shifted up so that sea level is at the bottom of the base. Thus, when you set two Explorer models next to each other, you will immediately notice which is taller, which rises more from its base, which is more massive, and so on. Plus, all Explorer models come in full color, making them just that much more realistic.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Strong and Flexible" materials. This model is in "Sandstone," which is a glued gypsum material. When you receive the model it will be ready for display, though it may smell funny and need some time to air out. "Sandstone" models are much more brittle than "White Strong and Flexible" models, but feel more like light stone. Do not soak it in water, though you can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here.

These models have been optimized for the above materials, and are not offered in other materials for strength or cost reasons. If you need one in another material, please tinymtnbiz@gmail.com and we'll do our best to fulfill your request.
