Marangu route is the most comfortable and less likely to get mountain sickness since it has a more gradual gradient. This is the only route that you get to sleep in built up huts complete with toilets and refreshments. its popularly known as coca cola route.

The biggest thing is to drink tons of water, move slowly, sleep as much as you can. I recommend attempting Kili, but perhaps schedule in an extra day for acclimatization.

@J: We loved trekking in Nepal and Peru as well and really loved our Kili hike. It’s different from the other mountain climbs we’ve done. So yes, go for it!

So far I have trekked Peru and Nepal; I am looking for my next adventure!

Is it Kilimanjaro? Or would you recommend somewhere else?

Thanks

I am fascinated with the idea of climbing Kili and really would love to do it but am very apprehensive. While hiking Macchu Pichu I got very ill and never determined whether it was altitude or a stomach bug. Keep going back and forth on whether to even attempt Kili with the altitude. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

True, everyone has a Mt. Kilimanjaro summit pic, but that stretch on the way back down to the trailhead was pure release.

Sometimes these type of pictures capture the imagination more than yet another clip of the summit. Well done and thanks for all the travel tips.

Kilimanjaro and thinking, “We are going to summit that thing!” Flying over Kilimanjaro can be spectacular, but there’s no better way to develop an appreciation and respect for a mountain than to see it up close and climb it.
