Climbing Kilimanjaro Information

  • How much does it cost to climb Kilimanjaro?

    How much does it cost to climb Kilimanjaro?

    Briefly, it does not take spending a fortune for a safe, comfortable and successful climb. However, the price below USD 1600 should alert you, as it is the first signal that your tour operator forsakes basic safety measures and hires semi-qualified (or unqualified altogether) guides and porters, who agreed to work for a pay far below the market average. Some tour operators do not pay their climbing crews at all, who sign up for the expedition relying on tips only.

    In addition to that, “budget” a Kilimanjaro climb means poor diet, second-rate obsolete equipment and no operations in place. Thus, though embarking on a cheap trip may seem attractive financially, in reality, it jeopardizes your safety and perpetuates porters mistreatment.

    Altezza Travel offers various climbing packages that differ in pre- and post-climb accommodation and extra services and amenities on the Mount. However, each expedition of Altezza Travel features the same safety standards and the same professionalism of our climbing crews.

  • Which route to choose for hiking?

    Which route to choose for hiking?

    There are several routes for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

    Those seeking seclusion, scenic value and good acclimatization transition should consider Lemosho or Northern Traverse. A pocket-friendly and picturesque Machame provides good acclimatization transition, though it is a bit crowded during the high season.

    Due to a popular misconception of being the easiest, Marangu route is the most popular and cheapest option. It is the only route providing hut accommodation (all other routes are camping only), which are handy for hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro during the rainy season. Marangu, however, features poor acclimatization and scenic value, as the trail is used for ascent and descent.

    Rongai is one of the least crowded and the only route approaching the Mount from the North. It is a physically challenging option for Kilimanjaro hiking and is ideal for those who value remoteness. This route is recommended for hiking Kilimanjaro during the rainy seasons (Northern side of the Mountain protects the climbers from precipitation).

    Umbwe route is the for the real adventurers. The steepest and shortest option to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Umbwe is a challenging test of your endurance, stamina and determination. The route offers unique panoramic sceneries. The cost of that is, however, the weakest acclimatization transition.

    We recommend you to read more here about Kilimanjaro climbing routes here before you make your choice.

    Kilimanjaro Climbing Tips

    For all those climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with us and with other tour operators, we have prepared the following insider tips:

    1. Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is not about your level of fitness only. Determination, motivation and well-planned acclimatization transition are more important.

  • Kilimanjaro climbing FAQ

    Kilimanjaro climbing FAQ

    Mount Kilimanjaro in a nutshell:

    Location: Kilimanjaro region, the United Republic of Tanzania
    Geographic coordinates: 03°04′33″S 37°21′12″E 
    Type of the mount Stratovolcano
    Altitude 5,895 m/19,308 ft
    First climb Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller on October 6, 1889
    Climbs annually Over 30,000
    Administrative authority Tanzania National Parks Authority (TANAPA)

    How fit do you have to be to climb Kilimanjaro?

    In short, ordinary fitness level is sufficient to reach the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro. If you can walk a 10-14 km/6-7 miles per day, certainly you can climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

    Many websites recommend intensive training for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Our practice, however, showed that people with ordinary fitness level who got proper acclimatization always reach the summit. Yet, professional athletes, who failed to get acclimatized well (either because they “rush”, or because their guides fail to control their trekking progress) are at serious risk of high-altitude sickness and evacuation.

    We do recommend you to take some exercises for your Kilimanjaro adventure. See our Kilimanjaro training program. Good fitness level will always be a good advantage for a Kilimanjaro adventurer, as it will help you to tackle daily trekking challenge with ease and comfort.

    If, however, for some reason you do not have an opportunity to take some workouts for your Kilimanjaro adventure - do not give up. Consider choosing a more extended program (such as Lemosho 8-day) with less daily trekking distance

    How long does it take to walk up Kilimanjaro?

    Depending on the route which you choose for your Kilimanjaro climbing adventure, it may take from 5 to 8 days. Longer programs with camping in Kilimanjaro crater are also available.

    Do I need to have an insurance for Kilimanjaro trekking?

    Though it is not a mandatory requirement for taking part in our Mount Kilimanjaro climb expeditions, we strongly recommend buying insurance against possible cancellation of your trip, lost and/or delayed luggage, emergency repatriation, emergency medical evacuation with helicopters.

    Drop us a line at [email protected] and we will give you a competent insurance advice for your Kilimanjaro adventure.

    Do I need to have a vaccination for Kilimanjaro expedition?

    It is imperative to have a vaccination against yellow fever to enter Tanzania in case you are travelling to Tanzania from a country with risk of yellow fever transmission. In all other cases there are no immunization/vaccination restrictions to enter Tanzania.

    For all those interested in getting more information we recommend reading our article Tanzania vaccination requirements.

    Trekking, hiking or climbing?

    Though three terms are often used interchangeably, there are some semantic differences. Hiking refers to the easiest type of leisure “walking” activities and implies that a hiker is walking by specially designated and adapted trails or human-made roads.

    Trekking also refers to the process of walking, yet this concept implies that a “trekker” walks a longer distance than a hiker and exerts himself physically above ordinary level. Another noticeable difference is that trekking expeditions take place in the areas with no transportation.

    The idea of “mountain climbing”, on the other hand, is fundamentally different from “hiking” or “trekking”. There are two distinguishing features of mountain climbing. Firstly, it means using special equipment (clothes and gear), which is not usually used for hiking or trekking expeditions. Secondly, the purpose of a climbing expedition is reaching the top of a mountain, while hiking and trekking may be practised in other wilderness areas.

    Thus, semantically Kilimanjaro expeditions are both climbing and trekking. One-day Kilimanjaro adventures to the lower camps may be classified as “hikes”.

    We at Altezza Travel are tolerant to the conceptual differences and use all these terms interchangeably.

    High altitude acclimatization for Kilimanjaro

    In short, at 6000 m (19700 f) altitude the proportion of oxygen molecules in the atmosphere is substantially lower than at the sea level. It is discomforting for a human body, which is accustomed to getting certain amounts of oxygen.

    We can get adapted to the shortage of oxygen molecules, but it is possible only when we progress upwards slowly to allow our body to make the necessary transformations in your respiratory system. Too fast ascent is the shortest way to HAPE and HACE, which are both life-threatening conditions.

    Proper acclimatization is the most important aspect of a successful of a Mount Kilimanjaro climb.

Kilimanjaro Weather

Month Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec
Weather

Dry season (July - October/ January - March)

The weather is rather predictable and less changeable. The precipitation is rare, and the sky is clear, making these months ideal for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. The temperature in the summit area fluctuates between -5 C and -10 C. The summit area is not covered with snow, and extra equipment is not necessary. Overall, dry season climbing is less challenging and more comfortable.

Rain season

It is possible to climb Mt Kilimanjaro all year round, and though the rain season requires some extra efforts, there are two advantages: the routes are less crowded, and Uhuru Peak is majestically covered snow, making the landscapes dreamlike. You will need to take extra sets of thermal underwear, T-shirts and socks. Rainfalls (and snowfalls in the higher camps) are likely to happen, and the days are windy and humid. The summit area is covered with snow and ice, making it necessary to take the gaiters and microspikes. In general, rain season climbing is more challenging, but the experiences are unique.

    Without help of the locals in countries such as Tanzania, it would be very difficult to make a high-quality preparation for the filming the TV program. Everything is quite expensive, the local people are not always honest and responsible. Without local guides, believe me, you won’t get neither proper holidays or any quality of good work. I was fortunate to work with Altezza Travel. Thanks guys, because of you we filmed a great program about Tanzania: experienced real hunting with local aborigine, got into the mine and discover the process of mining tanzanites, went on African safari in Tanzania. Altezza team fully took over the organization of our shooting in Arusha (or what to call this region ???). We only had to film our adventures and enjoy life! Thank you, Altezza Travel! Because of you I had terrific memories of Tanzania! I want to get back on safari, but for a long time, a couple of weeks :) Marina Grankina, executive producer of "Heads and Tails.

    My trip to Tanzania was a memorable one. I think that everyone needs to see the African wildlife through your own eyes, is unlike anything else. Everything is special here: great reserves with unusual trees and unique animals, mode of life of Tanzanians and snowbound peak of Kilimanjaro. So interesting to watch the animals in their natural habitat. They do not pay attention to observers and doing their own things: eat, sleep, hunt, mate and breed – I was able to see all of it and took pictures of the camera :) Honestly, there are a lot of different type of exotic animals. They are different, some species coexist together. Guides were talking with each other and pass the information where some of them noticed an interesting animal, so we were able to see all the animals that have been at this point in the park. My hotel was almost in the city center, which gave me a chance to walk along the streets and look at the lives of Tanzanians. In spite of my poor English I managed to talk with some locals, although they all wanted to sale useless stuff to me. :) However, they gave up after one or two refusals and then just agreed to chat with me. Of course the impression would be incomplete without climbing. Going uphill for 5 days was not only a good challenge, but also a fascinating journey through an unusual area with unique flora and fauna. On the day of the summit we had a trek for about 4-5 hours to the summit camp, then rest, and at night climb about 6-7 hours. It was not easy, but not too hard. The feeling that you are with every meter closer to the highest point of Africa, gave strength. When I saw in the distance a cherished plate, broke into a smile and tiredness disappeared. At the approach I took the camera out and filmed the moment of summiting the peak. I remember that I cried as if conquered Everest :) Read more
