I successfully summitted Mt. Kilimanjaro with Mountain Travel Sobek. It took 6 1/2 hours from the Barafu Hut and is not as hard as many make it out to be. Diamox is beneficial. Spectacular views from the summit. Recommend the Machame route. Take rain gear if you intend to climb in Oct. I am just finishing up writing about my experiences on the mountain. Would like to hear from anybody else about their experiences on the mountain.
