Highlights

 
  • Spend 10 days making your way to the summit of Kilimanjaro.

  • Enjoy spectacular views from various camps during the ascent.

  • From the summit, gaze at the sensational Tanzanian landscape.

 

Also known as the “Roof of Africa” Kilimanjaro (5,895m) is famous with climbers and adventurers from around the word. And, for 10 unforgettable days, I would like to guide you to this incredible peak’s spectacular summit.

Since this trip lasts for 10 days, you will have plenty of time to get properly acclimatized. Thus ensuring you will avoid the unpleasant effects of altitude sickness. Another great advantage of the 10-day length of the trip is you will have plenty of time to enjoy majestic views of not just Kilimanjaro, but other peaks in the area, including Mount Meru (4,562m). Furthermore, throughout the journey, which we will be taking along the Machame route, you will get to see a number of incredible highlights. Some examples include the Shira Plateau, which has amazing formations like the Cathedral and Needle of Shira, the Lava Tower and more.

Throughout our ascent, we will be staying in several different camps. Each camp is unique and will provide you with a comfortable place to rest for the night, as well as giving you fantastic viewpoints. The camps we will be staying in include the following.

  • Machame Camp (3,100m)
  • Shira Camp (3,845m)
  • Barranco Camp (3,960m)
  • Del Valle Camp (4,035m)
  • Barafu Camp (4,640m)
  • Mweka Camp (3,790m)

When it comes to amazing adventures, few can compare to the journey to the summit of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. If you would like to enjoy this adventure for yourself, all you have to do is send a request. I look forward to guiding you.

About the Guide

 
 

EPGAMT Mountain guide from Argentina.

The mountain is my workplace and space to enjoy what I like to do ... mountaineering.

I climbedd and promoted various mountains and volcanoes such as: Aconcagua , Ojos del Salado, Pissis , Walter Penck , Incahuasi, Plata, Rincon, Vallecitos , etc.

The mountain can find oneself, to rediscover the essence and every moment. It is a natural place that transmits balance, harmony, tranquility and at the same time, tests us and motivates us to self-improvement. The mountain is accessible to all, just enough to take the first step ... we offer a different experience to share.
