How Hard Is it to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro?
Part of the attraction to Kilimanjaro is that, with the right preparation and pacing, the peak is within reach for most enthusiastic adventurers, whatever your level of skill or experience. The challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro may be enough to draw you in, but the rewards are abundant. At 5896m, Mount Kilimanjaro stands proud as Africa’s highest mountain and one of the continent’s most enticing attractions.
In particular, as the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, it rises dramatically from the plains and coastal scrubland of northern Tanzania, as its snowy peak and glassy glaciers piercing the clouds which is beyond imagination. Moreover, the majesty of the mountain and the awe-inspiring views of Amboseli National Park in Kenya, the Rift Valley, and the Maasai Steppe are hard to compete with. The park is a protected area, aiming to minimize the impact of human interaction on the environment and wildlife.
Kilimanjaro Group Tours – Pre-Trek Briefing & Preparation
Normally, prior to our Kilimanjaro group tours, a mountain trekker will land in Tanzania a day or two before the climb and will stay in one of our suggested hotels in Moshi. The day before your climb, you will meet our certified mountain guide for a pre-climb preparation and thorough equipment check up. Furthermore, your gear is examined to check whether it is satisfactory and safe. If anything is missing or not up to standard, it can be hired from us (a rental gear list will be provided to you prior to booking).
During the pre-briefing, your mountain guide will cover all of the essential information about what to expect on the mountain, give tips on safety, climbing pace and answer any pending questions and concerns you may have. Be sure to listen attentively so our expert mountain guides can enhance your journey to the top of the highest free-standing mountain on earth!
What to expect on an unforgettable journey to “the roof of Africa” Mount Kilimanjaro?
The terrain and ecosystems evolve around you as you climb, with farmland quickly giving way to dense forests. Therefore it is here that you might get a glimpse of an elusive elephant, leopard, buffalo, or even the endangered Abbot’s duiker, as well as other small antelope and primates.
Leaving the forests behind, you’ll find yourself in almost ethereal alpine meadows, cloaked in thick heather and giant lobelias. As you approach the peak, in the ever-thinning air, the last signs of life are left behind and only rocks and ice dominate the harsh landscape. Here, on the roof of Africa, is where memories are made, earned and treasured.
How to find the best Kilimanjaro group tours
While it is true that all tours operators need to be affirmed by the park authorities, and all the mountain guides have to be authorized, the fact is that climbing mountain Kilimanjaro is an experience which, whenever organized by unreliable or incompetent Kilimanjaro group tour operators, can immediately become risky and even life-threatening too. You might expect that Kilimanjaro group tours companies would all be responsible and well-equipped, but unfortunately that is not always true. Be sure to ask the right questions and to consider your safety first.
