you. Another 2 hours of hiking along the crater rim near the celebrated snows takes you to

Kilimanjaro true summit, Uhuru Peak, by 9 AM. This is Africa’s highest point, and you would

have to travel more than 3,000 miles toward the Himalayas to find a higher peak! Be sure to

have your picture taken at the summit to show your friends. After your summit stay, descend

back to the Kibo Huts, have lunch, rest, collect your things, and re cross the saddle to the

Horombo Huts. Eat dinner and get some well-deserved sleep!

You do the beginning of this climb in the dark with headlamps or flashlights. It will be very

cold until you start descending, so you will need all of your warm layers. This is, by far, the
