Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro Trip Report (#4038)

For the two of us, we had a guide and four porters for the 5 day climb. I though it was a little

excessive. However, when I got down, I found that the porters were getting about $2/day

(remember this was 1982). I then wished I had paid two more to carry me up. I only got to

Gillman's Point, and was quite sick untill I got back to 12,000 ft. that evening. Hardest thing

I have ever done physically. Wish I could do it again, but I am afraid I would not make it,

Maybe if I took an extra day at 12,000 (I was fine till the last part of the climb to 15,000).

Still it was a great experience.
