KILIMANJARO KIT LIST
Kilimanjaro rises above the African plain to a height of 5,895m and is the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. It can be ascended via any one of seven main routes all of which take you from warm Savannah, through jungle rising to the large glacier at the roof of Africa. The main challenge of Kilimanjaro is its altitude - you ascend relatively quickly often without time to acclimatise. The trails are easy - moderate for most until you ascend about 4,500m then the going gets tougher and the altitude greater, and for those who succeed the reward is unforgettable. The majority of nights will be spent sleeping in tents (depending on your chosen route) and for the most part the hard working porters will carry most of your possessions so you can concentrate your energy on the 4- 6 hour daily treks and staying well hydrated. This kit list assumes you will be on an organised trek where many items such as shelter and food will be provided.
