It was not until 1848 that European’s took an interest in the snowcapped mountain. A missionary from Germany while crossing the plains of Tsavo saw Mount Kilimanjaro and brought word of the great mountain back to Europe. Throughout the following years there were several attempts to summit the mountain but the altitude and weather kept climbers from reaching their goal. It was not until 1889 that a man named Hans Meyer finally stood on the highest point of the crater rim.
