  • Climbing Kilimanjaro

    7_volcanoes17_summits_orgWhy Kilimanjaro?
    Because it is, simultaneously, the highest volcano and highest mountain in Africa, part of Seven Volcanoes and Seven Summits circuit.


    Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in the world, self standing. Massif of volcanic origin, ie is a stratovulcan. Data provided by specialists in 2003 shows that magma is only about 400 m below the crater bottom solidified on top.
    Althugh the mountain range lies just 3 degrees south latitude, due to high altitude on the mountain top there is permanent snow, that a glacier, which is found only on Mount Kibo.

    Route description:
    We climb the Machame route, considered the most beautiful avenue on Kilimanjaro. Accommodation will be in tents provided by the agency have porters who will carry  luggage and food, a chef and a local guide.

    THE TRIP:
    Day 1:
    Flight to Nairobi (Kenya).
    Transfer hotel accommodation.

    Day 2:
    Nairobi-Arusha  (Tanzania).
    Accommodation in Arusha (at the foot of Mount Meru).

    Day 3:
    We start by crossing the rain forest to Machame hut (3000m). The trail takes about 5h.

    Day 4:
    We leave the alpine forest reaching Shira plateau where we meet a special vegetation, most notably Lobeliile and Seneca huge and delicate Kilimanjari Impatiens. The route to Shira camp (3500m) takes aprox.5h.

    Day 5:
    The trail climbs about 4000m passing near a rock called "lava tower" and then down again to about 3500m in the beautiful Barranco camp. (Route takes 5-6h)

    Day 6:

    We will climb one area that requires a bit of climbing, we cross the valley and then we climb Karangasem Barafu camp (4800m), the last stop before the final assault. At this altitude the vegetation disappears, leaving the place of rocks and ice. We will not cross the glaciers, with no need for crampons or plastic boots.

    Day 7:
    We leave very early (0: 00 2:00 am), climbed up  on frozen earth to reach the summit before the mist rises from the rainforest. Climb on top, is a test of endurance, under atmospheric pressure and low thin air. We will make approx. 6h until Kibo crater edge and another about an hour until the highest point in Africa Uhuru Peak (5895m). We see the superb spectacle of sunrise at an altitude of over 5000m. After conquering the peak we enjoy, we start the descent to Barafu camp which will take cca.3h though, will seem loose after an effort to climb. Here we take a lunch break and continue descent to Mweka camp, where we sleep.
