I'm climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in October to raise money for cancer and want to make sure the trip is successful!
Any tips or advice regarding it?
Go slowly even if you feel like going fast, take ear plugs to sleep at night, careful of sunburn take a hat that protects your ears and neck, remember to look back and see how far you have come rather than how far you have to go..... have a blast and good luck! 1 day ago
Take Diamox, eat and drink every 20 minutes on the summit night/day, and take another 1/2 Diamox if you experience symptoms of altitude. Do not take ginger gravol or any kind of gravol (you will fall asleep).
*Very special to go to summit in the daytime. Hard to keep water from freezing during nighttime summit.
*Tip well. Those guys well deserve it.
*Second to above. Go slow. You will see people being strong armed down (no helicopter rescue there) and may talk to or hear about people/groups that didn't make it. You will do it if you follow above instructions.
*Bring an umbrella (porters will whip one out if there is a downpour). about 17 hours agoAnswered by Nadine Baumann via WorldNomads.com
