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!

HayleyL Hey Sophie and trip followers- here's an idea for you guys to toss around..
There's a little NGO called 'Make a Difference Now' working out of Moshi and Himo in Tanzania.
I have been here doing volunteer work for them for the last 3 months and absolutely LOVE it. The organization is currently putting 22 orphans through some great private schools (even including college) all around the kilimanjaro region.
They organize a big 'climb for education' every year.
The program fee includes:
Donation to our Education Fund for the Children
Airport pickup & Drop Off
24 Hour Security & Assistance
2 days of safari (Lake Manyara & Ngorongoro Crater--I did this last week...AMAZING!)
Swahili & Cultural Lessons
Park entrance fee and 6 days of climbing to the top or Kilimanjaro and back
Climbing Guide, 4 Porters, Cook and Assistant Guide
1 week of time with the children at the orphanage
6 days/ 5 nights at guest house near orphanage
7 days/ 6 nights hiking and camping on mountain with staff
2 days/ 1 night camping on safari
1 night hotel with pool after safari
All meals
All transport

Its a truly inspiring organization and I can't say enough great things about all of the wonderful kids! Such a rewarding experience.
And Ill have you know that there is no better feeling than reaching the peak of kili! Touching the highest point in Africa..So awesome!

Stacey Carrell- Rishaug Hey Sophia and the rest of you. I am just in the beginning stages of planning this climb and would love to have a group to do it with. I'm hoping to be able to do it some time in 2013 but I'm open to dates. This would be a huge adventure on its own.. but if there's a group of us from all over the world taking this on together, it would be a whole new level of amazing!! Lets do it! Stacey from Canada

sofia I'm in! When would you like to go? I won't graduate until Christmas 2012, so I can't go until then. I was hoping I could go in 2013 and I really want to explore Africa after conquering Kili! I'm so sorry how late I replay. I just totally forgot this site for a while, I've been so busy in school and work and haven't had a lot time planning and daydreaming! ;-)
