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.
