Kilimanjaro Rongai - Moorland Bivouac

A travel blog entry by amy.beith


Today after a good breakfast we set off for the start if the Rongai route which was about a 1.5 hour drive. Along the way we drove past little villages and saw all kinds of kids on their way to church all dressed up. The hike today was a piece of cake or a bowl of soup. We walked at a slow pace or "poli poli". The porters are incredible they carry 20 kg, running past us, with about half of it on their heads and make it look like a joke. We had a break for lunch which ...

Machame Madness - Summit or Bust

A travel blog entry by johneklund


... was jovial but a little nervous as we knew what was ahead of us!

At Machame gate we had to register our details before the climb. There is a rather stern looking sign warning you about all the dangers of climbing Kili and what can happen to you (e.g. altitude sickness - AMS, heart attack etc.!) - very comforting. After you register you go into a holding pen with fellow walkers while you wait for your guide to complete registration, as well as weighing the kit the ...

Summit Night/Day : illness,death and success

A travel blog entry by hobartfamily

... and was so much higher than I was. My headache had returned and I was starting to feel nauseous- it took so much effort to just focus on my breathing and the feet in front of me.
We stopped every 1-1.5 hours for a quick rest, snacks and water. My camelbak had frozen somewhere around 2am, I must have forgotten to blow the water back up the tube at one point. I'm so glad I packed another bottle as back-up. I felt too nauseous to eat much but forced myself to have a few bites at ...

Day 4: Moir Hut (4100m) to Barranco Camp (3950m)

A travel blog entry by sarah85


... up on journals, playing cards and talking rubbish. Good fun!
The clouds cleared again this evening- Wow! The summit's staring us down from behind Barranco Wall. It looks huge but I can now make out some of the rock formations/details- this actually makes it seem more manageable. Bring it on!
Just got up to go to the bathroom- stars are amazing! I can also see the lights of a town far below us- Machame? It's the first sense of just how high we've climbed. ...
