Mount Kilimanjaro Trip Report (#3743)

We were a group of six (1 Austrian, 5 Germans). We took 99 hours for the whole tour (Machame Park Gate - Machame Hut - Shira Hut - Arrow Glacier Camp - Western Breach - Uhuru Peak - Rau Camp instead of Mweka Camp - Park Gate). I think Western Breach is the most interesting route up to the summit. MEM (Moshi Expedition & Mountaineering) is a respectable and recommendable tour operator. For this route good acclimatisation is necessary - before Kilimanjaro we stayed 9 days in Mount Kenya National Park.
