Mount Kilimanjaro Trip Report (#3590)

I didn't do the Coca Cola route (which I heard was way overtouristed). I did the Machame-Mweka Route and it was amazing. Made it to the very summit (Uhuru peak).
1) bring plenty of those hand warmers. It is FREEZING at the top. Bring a good thermos with hot tea the night/day of your ascent.
2) Uhuru means 'Freedom'. Just a cool fact.
Feel free to contact me with any questions. I'm also an insured fire performer ( http://www.poispinner.com ). Cool !
