Mt. kilimanjaro National Park

Introduction to Mt. kilimanjaro National Park
An alternative theory claims that: On November 10th, 1848, the German Missionary Rebmann wrote in his diary: "This morning we discerned the Mountains of Jagga more distinctly than ever." Later on Von Der Decken climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in 1861, "who got no farther than 8,200 feet".Jagga was pronunciation of Chagga by Europeans. Kilimanjaro is may also European pronunciation of the Chagga phrase that "Kile-lema-irho" means that we failed to climb it in Kiuru, Kioldimoshi, Kimarangu, Kivunjo, Kikibosho, Kimachame and Kirombo, Kichagga in general. If so, name itself, Kile-lema-irho/Kilimanjaro, would have been the Chagga way of explaining to kyasaka/newcomers when they asked about the shining mountain top of Kibo and Mawenzi Peak. Kibo peak is more visible from the Kibosho Area, and Mawenzi from Maranu. Now you can relate that the names of these regions somehow determined the names of each peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
