'Volcano Above the Clouds' Nova Mount Kilimanjaro Documentary Review

I recently watched a 2003 NOVA documentary on Kilimanjaro titled 'Volcano Above the Clouds' with Arun. We got the video via Netflix. It was interesting to learn about the flora on the mountain and the activity of the volcano instead of just focusing on the summit itself. I was surprised to learn that Mount Kilimanjaro isn't a cold, dead volcano and that there could be the potential for a Mount Saint Helen's type disaster. 

Watch Volcano Above the Clouds on Netflix or see the documentary here:

One of the most frustrating parts of watching 'Volcano Above the Clouds' was seeing the treatment and reactions of the porters. At one point in the movie, the porters get into a huge fight over how to set up the campsite.

I am glad that the safari company we are using is an approved Partner for Responsible Travel with the International Mountain Explorers Connection (IMEC) Find out more:
