Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro Trip Report (#3825)

We, four Austrians (Willi Weissensteiner, Karl Aflenzer,

Robert Berger and Fritz Atschreiter), have reached the

top of Kilimanjaro via Machame Route and Western Breach

during a 6 days/5 nights tour. We think that this way

is the most exciting one, especially the night klimb

from Arrow Glacier Camp. We started at 0:30 , reached

Uhuru Peak at 6:30 and saw the Sun rise. Because of the

Moon and the Snow which fell the day before we did not

need our lamps, it was absolutely wonderful.

Not that wonderful was the descent (2.800 m and nearly

15 km distance) to the Mweka Hut.

We want to say Thank You once again to Mr. Thomas Lyimo,

Managing Director of Transkibo Travels in Moshi for the

excellent cooperation during the planning of our trip

and our guides Baltasar and Ewodi and all our porters

for the more than excellent tour guidance. We know,

what other groups hat to pay and saw which support

they have got.
