Name Let's climb Kilimanjaro!

I haven't plan this trip much, all I know is that I really want to climb Kilimanjaro and I don't want to do it alone. I'm still in college so I can't do this until 2013.

The best time to climb Kilimanjaro is in January-March and June-October. We would fly to Tanzania, climb Kilimanjaro and then you can do whatever you want. I would love to explore Africa better after we've finished climbing and whoever wants to join me would be welcome. To climb Kilimanjaro takes about 5-6 or 6-7 days, depends on which way we will choose to climb.

I really want to climb the mountains in Nepal as well and especially Mt. Everest as a example so it would be amazing if we could make a climbing group and plan a few trips!

If you'r not excited to climb Kilimanjaro then I will consider other mountains to climb! I have never climbed any mountains outside Iceland so I will have to find some easy mountains to start with...

I am flexible with the dates. I can go from 2013 to like 2018 I thing.

If you are a adventurous person like me who loves to climb, please join this group and go climb with me some day in the future!

Yeah and one more think, sorry if my spelling isn't correct. My language isn't English but I still know how to talk English, so that won't be a problem!

Elvin Friends, finally I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro on 14th of November along with my three friends via Machame route.
The trip was very good despite being difficult to mount due to bad weather, but we thank God for all that we have achieved our goals we expected. I am also very grateful because our guide had encouraged us to order Summit.
So friends, thanks to Bush Duiker Tours, and for anyone who wants to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, i recommend using this company because its services are cheap and very good. We paid 1500usd per person but we felt like we diminished due to the good service we received from them. Their contact details are (www.bushduikertours.co.tz).

Thank you Bush Duiker for your generosity.

Loxoadventure 9 TIPS BEFORE CLIMB MT KILIMANJARO
1. Be properly equipped
An essential part of your preparation will be to ensure that you are well equipped for your summit attempt.
2. Be physically prepared
It is important that your body is adequately prepared for the physical challenges of Mount Kilimanjaro.
3. Mental preparation
This should be uppermost in your mind when preparing for the summit attempt. You should always remain in a positive state of mind, but not too arrogant. Try to anticipate various different scenarios, which you may possibly encounter on the mountain and try to work out the most suitable course of action, mentally by yourself or even as a group.
4. Adequate travel insurance
Make sure that you have adequate travel and medical insurance, which will also provide you with cover for the climb up Kilimanjaro.
5. On The Mountain - Go slowly
Go slowly - "Pole Pole" as they say in Swahili! This is also very important during your first days of climbing. Even if you feel well, slow down and enjoy the scenery. The biggest cause of altitude sickness is ascending too high too fast! The slower you hike to more time you give your body to acclimatize.
6. Drink enough water
Make sure that you drink at least 3 - 4 liters of liquid a day - preferably water. For your first day it is recommended that you take along fresh water, which may be purchased. Try to get the bottles with the screw tops, this way you will also have containers in which to take water further up the mountain. Running water on the mountain is safe to drink from day-2 onwards, but care should still be taken. If you are not used to fresh water in nature, prevent any inconvenience by using water purification tablets. REMEMBER! A functioning "body water balance" is one of the keys to a successful climb!
7. Walk high - sleep low
If possible and especially on your acclimatization day "walk high - sleep low" Try to do a short evening meander to a higher altitude and then descend to sleep at the camp at a lower altitude. This is essential on your acclimatization day.

8. Climb light
Climb as lightly as possible; this becomes even more important on your summit night. Extra weight will slow you down and will also make breathing more difficult.
9. Clothing
You will require the correct underwear, thermal hiking socks, gloves (preferably mittens), warm head protection, rain coat, sunglasses and sun protection cream. Also remember your hiking boots, hiking/running shoes (it is not necessary to walk with boots or climbers shoes until the last sections where scree and rocks are encountered), and very importantly, a walking stick / ski-pole. One of the most critical items of clothing is an outer jacket. You want it to perform the functions of keeping you warm, protect you at temperatures of as low as minus 25 degrees Celsius, keep the wind out and yet still "breath". Try to avoid tight fitting clothing or underwear. This will hamper circulation, causing either cold or discomfort on the mountain. A balaclava is a must, as it will protect your face against cold, wind, sun and snow. Other clothing like shorts, sweaters and T-shirts are strongly recommended, especially during hiking on the lower slopes, when the day temperatures are still high.

roadrunner I am also a bit confused by the number of replies. I am rather restricted in my schedule. I will be in Tanzania from around Jan 10 to Jan 25, 2013and the climb of the Kilimanjaro should fit into that time. Anyones else who planes to go during this time?
