Western Breach, self-supported  Sucess!

Hired a guide to make it legal (no porters), but didn't let him do anything but point out the way. Carried all of my own food, gear, medical etc. on climb. Took long Lemosho route and took extended trail via Moir Hut, Lava Tower and Arrow Glacier camps in route to climbing the Western Breach, spending the night on top at Crater Camp. Awesome way to climb the mountain. Actually made it feel like real mountaineering, unlike the standard experience on the mountain.

Great trip and I was lucky not to be hit by the altitude too badly. Summit day is a long one but worth it once you reach the roof of Africa. We climbed with Kilimanjaro Brothers, a local company.

Kili via Lemosho  Sucess!

Go with Baraka Trails for the best possible experience on this mountain. I have used many services across the globe and they are the very best and super affordable. I have posted a complete trip report here.

Needed Crampons!  Sucess!

Made it to the top in the one of the deepest snows on Kilimanjaro in the last ten years. Needed crampons to get up the last bit to stella point and then down again. Did the lemosho route with Zara Tours.

8 days Lemosho route  Sucess!

Very nice and scenic route. Also the best option for acclamation as it takes 7 days to reach the summit.

Lemosho Glades route  Sucess!

Did the Lemosho Glades route. Unfortunately it's not allowed to do it solo. Had to go with local guide, porters and cook, which totally ruined the experience.

6 Day Machame  Sucess!

Rainy and snowy week but fortunately summit day was not too bad. The Machame route in six days is doable but offers less acclimatization. In retrospect I would have done it in seven days.

Machame route  Sucess!

We did 7 days Machame route with Tanzania Joy Tours. I would highly recommend this company because all of us were very satisfied with the service provided by them. The porters and the guides were very helpful and the price we paid was very reasonable.

Quick summit   Sucess!

Great trip, up and down in 4 days so had time to enjoy rest of Tanzania

Got to the Top  Sucess!

Took the Lemosho Route, which gave us seven days to acclimatize before summit day. Nine of us got to the top. Great group and great hike, even if we summitted Kibo in clouds and sleet. And outstanding guides -- Bwenje, Edward, Charles and Polite -- who were determined to get this gang of 60-year-olds to the top.
