Kilimanjaro: The Myth And Mystery Has Made It A Thriving Destination In The Whole World. People who love adventure or want to do something different than what others are doing take Kilimanjaro Climbing as an opportunity to prove themselves. The mountain is said to be the “Everyman’s Everest” for its easy accessibility. The record reviles that after it was first (successfully) climbed by a German geology professor, Hans Meyer, and an Austrian mountaineer, Ludwig Purtscheller, on 6th October 1889, thousands of visitors have reached on the summit. Even the history of Kilimanjaro climbing has been flooded with a lot of instances that it has been conquered by the disables on wheel chairs. This states that Kilimanjaro is climbing friendly where the success rate of summiting is the highest. But the fact is that, if everyone trying to summit is getting the success?

No doubt that Kilimanjaro Is Easy To Climb Among 7 Summits In The World. It is need less to advocate that the successful Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing need more of the determination than the muscular potency. Yet there is always the other side of the coin. The success rate is not 100% always. A few leave the expedition from the half way due to some reason or other. It is because the successful climbing depends on many factors like:

Fitness To Climb Mount Kilimanjaro: You need to keep your body and mind fit before taking up the expedition. Many routes leading to the top are not so stiff and do not require much physical strength. Yet mountaineering is an arduous task always and the physical stamina along with a stubborn mentality is absolutely necessary. Besides if you are very prone to cold related diseases means you can’t survive with the lower temperature in high altitude or you are suffering from high altitude sickness, then before climbing you need to consult with a physician.

Climbing Skills On Kilimanjaro: Kilimanjaro does not require any special training or skill to climb. Yet as you are required to move up with the rugged routes, you need to be more cautious while stepping forward. You need a little bit practice of how to climb up with the rugged track. This is why it is always advised to trek Mount Meru before attempting for Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing.

Kilimanjaro Kit Requirements: Hiking gears are most important for the mountain climbers. Especially the attire keeps much value for them. You are required to pass through varied vegetation and landscapes. So you should carry the clothing with you that most suit to the changing atmospheric conditions. Remember the moment you would enter gradually to colder zones, you would need more warm clothes, with gloves and stockings.

Kilimanjaro Routes: No route has been recommended by the Kilimanjaro authority as the easiest or the best route to the summit. It is you to decide what route you would take on. It entirely depends on your taste and preference. From among the six routes, some are shorter and some are longer and some are more scenic than others. Some routes would bring you more adventurous taste. So always consider your physical strength, taste and preference and the duration of journey before going for hike.

Kilimanjaro Weather – When To Book Your Climb? It is a fact that, you have to pass through an atmospheric span that ranges from hot to bitter cold. The journey would be just like from equator to Antarctica. Due to the proximity of equator, it does not experience much effect of the change in seasons. Hence it is taken as a year round destination. Yet there are two pick seasons to book for Kilimanjaro Climbing. The first span is Jan-March and the second is June-October. In these times the visibility is more which helps in climbing.

Acclimatization On Kilimanjaro: Acclimatization is the process by which the body becomes accustomed to lower availability of oxygen in the air and can only be achieved by spending time at various levels of altitude before progressing higher. On Kilimanjaro there are three altitude zones – high altitude (2,500 – 3,500 metres), very high altitude (3,500 – 5,500 metres) and extreme altitude (above 5,500 metres). Before entering into every zone the climbers need to have sufficient rest to compensate the loss of oxygen.

Kilimanjaro Food: Unlike the gears, food is an important factor that would keep on supplying energy to body and mind. The significant part of Kilimanjaro food comprises of both nuts and meat. Besides this you tell your agency beforehand if you have any special dietary requirement or if you have any dietary restrictions based on religion.

Water On Kilimanjaro: Getting adequate water on Kilimanjaro is a great concern. Collect the water from low elevations from running streams, boil it and carry it with you. You may be dehydrated. So keep ample of water bottles with you. The water would be supplied by your agency. Just use it cautiously.

Kilimanjaro Guides And Porters: Kilimanjaro is mysterious. It is unwise to trek Kilimanjaro without a guide. Find the best agency to book the best guide and porter. The guide would train you, suggest you and guide you all through your way to the summit. The experienced guides and porters always bring the more success rate in hiking.

Determination: The strong determination makes everything possible. The history of Kilimanjaro Climbing unfolds that even the disables have been able to summit it’s pick with strong determination. This is the key to Kilimanjaro success.
