Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro Trip Report (#3767)

Having trekked the Marangu route in 96, It was a welcome relief to approach Kibo from the Kenyan side, along the Rongai route. This was a desolate moonscape much like the terrain across the saddle to Mwanzi but provided stunning views of the summit from behind...comming down the marangu route confirmed my fears that the tourist trail is decimating the mountain side, with traffic jams of porters and tours bimbling along a pathway...DONT DO IT!
