Why are Mount Kilimanjaro Tours so expensive?

Climbing Kilimanjaro is a costly endeavor. This is due to park fees and taxes in the area. The Kilimanjaro National Park fees alone cost over $800 per person for a 6-day climb. When all of a tour operator’s expenses are factored in (including the salaries of your mountain crew, equipment, food, transfers, and so on), the tour operator only has a small profit margin. As a result, they are unable to offer you significantly lower prices than those found on Tranquil Kilimanjaro. Companies that offer significantly lower prices are either breaking the law or mistreating your porters.
