Why should I bring a cloth tissue when climbing Mount Kilimanjaro?

A runny nose is most likely caused by the chilly, thin air at such a high altitude. To clean your nose, we recommend using cotton tissue. This is kinder to your skin than paper, and you may use it for a longer period of time. Because it may become rather chilly – especially on Kilimanjaro’s summit night – we recommend attaching a cotton napkin to your glove so you can clean your nose without removing your gloves.
