Mount Kilimanjaro, affectionately known as “Kili” by some, is the fourth most topographically prominent peak on the globe. Those who wish to submit the mountain start their journey by hiking through lush greenery alongside exotic wildlife. As they get closer to the top, the vegetation gives way to a rocky vista. The few who have the fortitude and good fortune to make it to the summit might feel like they have landed on another planet. Even though Mount Kilimanjaro is located on the equator, the peak stands so high that the summit is perpetually covered in snow and glaciers. In the 3D model, the crater at the top of the mountain dances with light and shadow, a vestige of the powerful eruptions that took place there thousands of years ago.
Because topography models are meant to be held and touched, they allow you to appreciate the beauty of your favorite terrain in ways that no other product can. The model has been CNC machined out of solid aluminum using 3D models produced with USGS topographical data. With a diameter of 3.5" and a height of up to 1.75" this item is perfect for desks, coffee tables, shelves, and window sills. The many facets of this model shimmer beautifully when placed near a window or other light source.
TRUE TO NATURE
All the topographical models are produced with high resolution USGS topo data collected by the space shuttle in the year 2000. This means that each topograph appears exactly the same as the place it's modeled after.
EXTRAORDINARY QUALITY YOU CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT
The topographs are 100% made in the USA with American-made materials and tools. We use the highest quality aluminum billet available, which means your model will be around until someone melts it down. Everything from our by-product to our metal-cutting tools, to our packaging is 100% recyclable to make absolutely sure we leave nothing behind except for awesome products and happy customers.
