Absolutely astounding. I did this as part of a Team Challenge group and I was 16. We had fantastic guides from Zara Tours based in Moshi, called Allen and Goodluck. Out of 11 of us, 9 got right to the top. (The reason for the other two being the cold on the summit day, it was -15 degrees C). We kept our spirits up with songs and hilarious dreams of one of the team who were on Larium. We all took Diamox, I'm sure that it helped, but it sure did make us wee alot. It think 20 times in a day was the record. Make sure you take plenty of film for your camera - sunrise from the top is a reward in itself - spectacular!
