Is Mount Kilimanjaro a climb, a trek or a hike?

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is commonly referred to as a climb. This may give the impression that it’s technically difficult and out of reach for most people, which it isn’t. Because most excursions last 6-9 days, it’s more appropriately defined as a trek, which necessitates carrying a considerable number of provisions. However, because your porters are responsible for carrying your belongings, the majority of visitors find it to be more of a climb. However, calling it a trek may understate the effort and risks of climbing at high altitudes.
