We set off at 9am this morning and made our way through the machame gate which is the starting point for this route,our climb took us on a steady climb through magnificent dense rainforest which was steep in places and after 8 hours of hiking we reached our night camp ( machame camp) this is 3100 metres high and approximately 3 times the height of Ben Nevis. Supper was served at 7pm which was soup and bread then a meat and potato stew.we had an amazing view of the peak from base camp tonight which just put everything into perspective of how challenging this is going to be. We are up at 6.30 am so an early night for the camp- good night
