Mt. Kilimanjaro is a breathtaking and stunning mountain. It may be climbed in five days or more, with seven days being optimum for acclimatization to altitude. The guides’ watchword is “slowly, slowly.” On both the ascent and descent, there are breathtaking views of the mountain (you take different routes going up and down). The only other peak visible from Kilimanjaro is Mt Mehru.
It’s a strain to go from the final camp (Barafu, at around 4,800 meters) to the summit on the final day. It’ll be chilly, windy, and dark for the majority of the time.
You may find it difficult to breathe when the air becomes thinner. The final ascent to the summit ridge will take roughly 6 to 7 hours. The slope on the ridge is pretty gradual, and it is daylight and getting warm.
It’s a challenging trek, and you’ll need to be reasonably fit to walk up mountains. It is not possible to climb in a technical manner.
