Our trek climbing up the Kilimanjaro mountain avoids the frequently touristed path in favour of the more picturesque back route for the final ascent. This highly exclusive and rarely utilized footpath affords trekkers superb exposure to the area’s isolated and undefiled nature. The climb will take us through swiftly changing conditions while revealing remarkable views of east Africa’s peaks and plains.
On the eve of our summit day, we will depart our camp at 16,000 ft and make our way through the dawn, reaching the summit peak by early morning. In this rare setting, we can savour the view of a new dawn over Africa – Kenya to the North, Tanzania to the south. It’s a vision that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Perhaps the most underestimated of the seven summits, Kilimanjaro at 19,340 ft, is an extreme high altitude climb. Your greatest chance of a successful summit is climbing with an experienced mountaineer who specializes in high altitude. Not only do highly experienced guides increase your chance of standing on top, but do so in a healthy and strong manner.
