Access 360° World Heritage: Kilimanjaro

World Heritage Site Mount Kilimanjaro is on the verge of catastrophe. Forests are burning, rivers are drying up and the mountain's signature ice cap is disappearing. NGC joins a team of eco-warriors fighting to preserve this one-of-a-kind ecosystem on the brink of disaster. Extreme athlete Simon Mtuy can run up and down Kilimanjaro in a mere nine hours and 22 minutes, a superhuman feat that would take an “average Joe” five days.
