Reaching Uhuru Peak is one of the most exhilarating experiences I've ever had... simply because almost every step I took from Day 3 onwards took every bit of effort/concentration. The climb was not only a physical challenge, but also took a lot of mental determination, i.e. not to give up and to take it one step at a time!!!
I did the 7day trek through Machame route, and I'm glad I did as the views were magnificent! It was extremely cold at night, particularly summit night. I highly suggest that, if you were to attempt the summit, do it on a full moon as it makes for a wonderful experience!
A big thank you to my super guide Bariki from Trans-Kibo Travels!
