Kili climbing di BHS Traveladvisor è costruito in modo da essere unico e differente rispetto a quanto proposto da altre agenzie e tour operator

La rotta Marangu è stata definita la “Coca Cola” e questo ha portato i potenziali climbers a pensare che sia una via facile per raggiungere la vetta. Questo è lontano dalla verità per essere onesti! Il fatto che siano necessari almeno 5 giorni per completarlo non significa che sia più facile di qualsiasi altra via. L’unica ragione per cui si dice che è più facile è perché è l’unica via del Kilimangiaro dove si dorme in lodge piuttosto che in tende.. Per evitare qualsiasi inconveniente il nostro tour prevede una giornata di acclimatamento.

Il percorso inizia dalla sede del parco nel villaggio di Marangu e si dirige ad ovest verso Kibo. Il sentiero passa attraverso la lussureggiante foresta pluviale, la brughiera, fino al deserto alpino e infine la zona artica al culmine.

La stessa rotta si farà a scende reverso il basso.

    Leave Moshi/Arusha at 8am for Marangu Gate. After completing gate registration, begin your Kilimanjaro trek. Walk along a narrow trail through the rainforest of Kilimanjaro for most of the hike. Eat a picnic lunch at Kisambioni, day one’s halfway point. After lunch continue walking through the rainforest until reaching Mandara Hut. Relax for the rest of the day or take a short walk to Maundi Crater. The views to the east over Taveta and to the northwest to Mawenzi Peak are stunning on a clear day, making the short hike well worth the effort. The A-frame Mandara Huts can accommodate up to seventy people and consist of several sleeping huts and a dining area. All of Marangu’s huts have beds with mattresses.

Eat a picnic lunch at Kambi ya Taabu before continuing to Horombo Hut. If the weather is clear, enjoy beautiful views of Mawenzi and Kibo peaks. Arrive at Horombo Hut at around 3pm and spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing. Although extremely busy, the Horombo Huts are considered to be the nicest on Kilimanjaro.

After lunch, continue on a steady incline for another two hours through Kilimanjaro’s Saddle.
