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!

Logan Hey Sophia. I am also keen to join in on this trip. There are a few different people suggesting months in 2013, but as you are the one who made the original post, I guess its up to you to make the decision 'when'. This will help people plan. For me, I can go anytime!

MsMaria Hey all... im maria. from NJ. im new to this website. I am in the process of researching to do a safari then climbing Kili in 2013. aug or sept. this is my dream. one of my friends is also interested in doing this with me but would love more company. this is a very challenging and expensive hike.
one. airfare
two. finding the right company. and deciding on the route/trek. I would like to do the machame route. i hear it has great views as well as the best percentage of climbers who actually make it to the top. downside is that we would be camping in tents.
three.... the gear you need is expensive. -20c sleeping bag, hiking boots. trek poles, layers of clothing- including base layers, fleece and down layer and outer shell layer. waterproof and windproof. i went to the store to check out the prices and it is not cheap at all! but i rather spend on the gear that freeze my azz off and NOT make it to the top.
another thing to be aware of is that you have to be fit before the climb and you have to be aware of atitude sickness, which may interfere with reaching the top.
