Breathtaking, absolutely mentally and physically draining.. but probably the best holiday I have ever had(certainly the most challenging!!) Watched the sunrise at Gilmans at 0545 and summitted 2 hours later.. A few tips, spend an extra day at Horombo, make sure that you book with a good company, I cannot recommend ZARA Tours highly enough - the best! Saidi and his crew were just brilliant(his singing was the only thing that kept me going during the night scramble upto Gilmans)..! When you get to Hans Meyer cave, you think your nearly there... but don't count on it!
