Kilimanjaro is beautiful. With a climate like that and a landscape like this, this place is a mini heaven. Truly this place is indeed incredible. We had a really lovely time here at the trek. It was interesting and enthralling. I personally loved the whole trekking experience. Not to mention, the beauty of the trek trails that are this old and this natural.

Kilimanjaro trek is one of the very lovely treks. This is also one of the oldest and quite natural trek trails. While, the trek was great, it was equally tiring. My knees are worn out from the trek. Only people with high trek experience can do this.

Overview

About the Destination:

Mount Kilimanjaro trek still poses a challenge for the climbers, though ignored by many trekkers. Also known as the ‘Common Man’s Everest’, Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa is the tallest in the country and world’s highest free-standing peak. Bestowed with diverse range of flora and fauna and the base, as one ascends to the summit of this mountain, they will get to witness a contrast of what they get in the base.

Rising up to an altitude of 5,895m, the summit is adorned with screes and remain covered with snow during the winters. On a Mount Kilimanjaro climbing expedition, though it might not seem so, but be aware as you might be offered with a range of difficulties; low oxygen level and rocky passes are two of the most remarkable obstacles!

    Kilimanjaro Trek in Tanzania is a special and an unique experience that I am proud and happy about sharing. I remember reading about the famous Kilimanjaro in history and geography back in high school. I used to wonder what is so great about this place. While, I saw the images of this place, I realized what a beauty this place was. I since then have this place in my wishlist. I, however, did not find time or partner to go on this trek with. Finally when I did happen to take this trek, I was spell bound. This place is beyond words – Sheer Brilliance.

    Kilimanjaro Trek in Tanzania was my dream since the time that Robot movie song came. Well, it may sound clichéd, but something about that song intrigued me and I was thinking of going to this place. I took this trek with my wife, and she says this is a very scary and a tough trek. However, I feel that this trek was quite uncomplicated, medium level difficult trek that is worth every penny and time spent.

    Kilimanjaro Trek In Tanzania is one of its kind of a special trek that is such an old and beautiful trek. One can’t experience such a trek generally in other trek trails. Tanzania is by itself a beauty and this trek adds more grace to it. I enjoyed this trek totally and heartfully. Do try this trek. I highly and strongly suggest this.

    The trekking experience was fine and brilliant. We had a nice experience. While the trek is definitely brilliant and great, what would have made it more great would be proper organization. The trek has a few issues too as this trek easily drains your energy if you haven’t got that much experience or brilliant stamina. Apart from that though, the trek is an all together brilliant and memorable experience to take with loved ones or even alone.

    Kilimanjaro trek was interesting and great. I had a great time with the trek here. I loved the whole experience. It was fun and interesting. We loved the whole vacation. The biggest plus about this trek is the awesome climate. It was super fun and super cool while taking trek in such a weather. Also, this trek, on the downside, drains one’s stamina as it is quite tedious despite it doesn’t look so. Therefore, being well equipped and fit is mandatory. Overall a must do trek.

    My boyfriend and I being the adventurous lot who try a lot of adventurous activities wanted to try our hands at trekking. After some basic treks in and around Bangalore, we decided to take this trek and we were indeed successful. The trek was not very easy, but we did enjoy even those little thorns. After a point in the trek we could feel out legs, but somehow we overcame those and did end up finishing the trek. It was such a proud and happy moment for us.
