Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro Trip Report (#4024)

Enjoyed pictures better than being there (due to altitude sickness). 5 day safari walking some 70 miles. However was exhillerating experience. Especially remember running down the "skree" on the upper crater. Mid day temperature was 21 deg. F. Flew over Killimanjaro in June, 1979 (after 29 years) and was impressed how much the snow line has risen. It is now within a few hundred feet of the top. In 1970, was at approx. 16,500 ft. level.
