If you are reading this, it is because somehow you are interested in climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. In this post we will share with you what we know that makes climbing Kilimanjaro so special.
So many spend so much money and time to prepare for it. They come in number to climb the highest free-standing mountain in the world.Us, for instance, have helped over 30,000 trekkers to ascend to the "Roof of Africa” in our 20+ years.
1.A sense of accomplishment:
Climbing Kilimanjaro for many has been a thought or goal one wishes to achieve at some point in their lifetime.In fact, some climbers have planned to have special moments of their life such as birthdays, engagements, anniversaries, on the highest mountain in Africa
Whatever reasons you have to climb Kilimanjaro, once you have done it,there's feel a great sense of accomplishment, which in turn increases self- belief in your capability to achieve anything you set to do in your life.
So even if you feel like you are stuck or that your life doesn’t really make sense, climbing Kilimanjaro can become your medicine for that!
2. Great views
No doubt, you will see amazing views no matter which route you choose. However, truth be told, some Kilimanjaro routes have better views than others.
3. Climate Zones:
Mount Kilimanjaro has 4 major international climate zones! You will trek through those zones on way to the summit.
That’s why when it comes to the climate; we often like to compare climbing Kilimanjaro with visiting the world in less than 10 days. Here is a summary of the zones:
Rain forest (montane forest) zone: Other places in the world where you will get this climate include Amazon River Basin (South America), the Congo River Basin (western Africa), much of southeast Asia, Madagascar, and Central America.
Heather Moorland zone: Yes, the famous Scottish heather moorlands are also found on Mount Kilimanjaro.
Alpine desert: Found in Colorado, USA and some parts of Japan to mention a few places, is the alpine desert zone that can be experienced when climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
Arctic zone: Yes, you will have a chance to experience arctic zone weather on your summit day as you climb and reach Uhuru peak.
4. Life Changing Experience
It's a self-discovery experience with a few practical lessons. Walking "Pole Pole" (Swahili for "slowly, slowly")which you will hear a thousand times helps you conserve your energy for the long run. The actual trek might not be as difficult as fighting off the voices inside your head, “Keep going, I am not strong enough, I can't make it".
Allowing yourself to take deep breathes and find perspective will enable you to overcome the panic voices. Connecting with your crew over the "Jambo Bwana"
song and the amazing support humbles you!
In the end, Kilimanjaro will strengthen your daring spirit by pushing your limits to heights you once thought were your limit.
