Can an out of shape person make it to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro?

Yes but if you realize that it will be difficult, give yourself plenty of time, listen to your guides, follow the acclimatization advice, and pace yourself carefully. Oh, and don’t forget to bring the proper gear.

The most important thing is to understand how to walk at a high altitude. Inexperienced hikers frequently start out rapidly, run out of breath after 5 minutes, and then stop to rest.

Instead, choose a speed that you can sustain indefinitely and walk for approximately half an hour at a time before stopping. Read more about if an overweight person can climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
