mount kilimanjaro climbing meaning

What does “Kilimanjaro” mean? The exact meaning of Kilimanjaro is uncertain, but it is closely related to two words: the Swahili word ‘Kilima’, meaning ‘mountain’, and the local Chagga root, ‘Njaro’, meaning ‘white’. Together we get the “White Mountain”, probably because of the snow cover everywhere on the very large volcano.
