Mount Kilimanjaro Trip Report (#3729)

- Date submitted: March 07, 2004
I climbed Kilimanjaro as a seven day trip via the mormal route from Marangu. I carried all my stuff myself except from Horombo to Kibo Hut, where I engaged a porter. I made another bivouac on the slope to Kibo on 5150 m to be sure to reach Uhuru Peak. The next day I really reached the top and was absolutely alone - an unforgettable atmosphere. It was my highest peak. I am now 50 years old and I still intend to reach a 6000 m peak hoping to overcome the present health problems.
