My friend and I made it on top of Kili on Sun June 13, 2004 around 8.00 am I think. I did not make it there by sunrise but my friend did I think, nevertheless had a joy of watching the sunrise while scaling the summit.

My body and mind was completely cramped, tired and exhausted because of the lack of fluids (although I was loaded with fluids) and improper clothings. As for the fluid situation I wasn't thinking and one can't because of the lack of oxygen up there! Well it was my first ever extreme altitude climb, great experience I must say!

Finally undoubtedly and inarguably the greatest feelings and satisfaction I had in my life so far!!! Still its very fresh and very new!!!
