Best Time to Visit

You have to hike for five to ten hours a day with usual breaks to eat and drink. Your nights are spent in two individual dome tents with hot meals in a communal eating tent. There are toilet cabins and every day you will get a bowl of warm water to clean. Porters will go along with you all day and set up camp earlier than you reach to your destination. On the Marangu route you have to live in six individual mountain huts with bunk beds. It is awesome experience away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life.

How much dangerous is it: There are a small number of deaths on Mount Kilimanjaro each year with acute mountain sickness (AMS) and heart attacks being the major reasons. Exceptionally infrequently there are freak accidents too, for example lightning strikes etc. So it is advisable to consult with your physician before you embark on the journey. Once you are sure and certified by your doctor only then it is advised to take on this journey. A word of caution – Do not compromise on this (health condition) in trying to be fancy.

Please speak to your doctor before you attempt such a challenge
