In 1995 I climbed Uhuru Peak, weather was excellent, sunrise and views were magnificent, physical weakness was horrible.
In 1998 I merely made it up to Gillman's due to bad weather. It was the time of heavy rains in East Africa, so there were lots of deep snow on top of Kilimanjaro. The summit was veiled in thick clouds so there was no impressive sunrise at all. Again my physical weakness was horrible, so I decided to return.
For both climbs I took Marangu route within 5 days. Next time I will take one more day for acclimatization.
