Visit Furtwängler Glacier

Tanzania

Furtwängler Glacier is a small remnant of an enormous ice cap once crowning the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. The glacier is named after Walter Furtwängler who was part of the fourth party to ascend to the summit of Kilimanjaro in 1912. Sadly, almost 85 percent of the ice cover disappeared from 1912 to 2011 and based on current estimates, most of the the ice will disappear by 2040. This is worth a visit to one of Tanzania’s most-loved tourist attractions.
