... 15 DAY 1 - MARANGU GATE (1980m) to MANDARA HUT (2700m) - 8KM, 5 HOURS
I was glad to know that the first day was a relatively easy one. Our guide Omari and assistant guide Bacali made sure we were always walking 'pole pole' (slowly, slowly) which is super important as we were already starting out at quite an altitude and walking at this pace meant we were more likely to acclimatize.

Apart from the toes I've actually got to ...
... tea (with sugar, very good in this situation!), toilet and pictures in the sunlight. The next part was the one I was dreading the most - coming all the way back to camp. And again I was surprised by how the majority of the online accounts made it out to be such a nightmare and it wasn't at all. We set off from Stella point at 8:30 and were back in Barafu at 10:15 - much faster than I had imagined. The guides taught us how to scree-run which admittedly ...
