We have all made it back safely to Arusha! Our last hike through the Jungle started early in the morning and finished in time for lunch at Mweka gate. We are all tired but feeling accomplished and glad to be back in the world of showers and beds.
Thanks for following along on our trip! Congratulations to Team Tumor Raiders for a great trip. This is the end our our winter season climbs in Kilimanjaro. We’ll be back on the mountain in June!
Yesterday we had a great hike from Shira to Baranco! It was our longest hike before going to the summit but also a beautiful hike. In the afternoon we got some rain but it didn’t damper the spirits of this group. Last night we all slept well and woke to clear skies. Today we ascended the infamous Baranco wall and continued for a few more hours to Karanga camp. We are now at 13,300ft at Karanfa with a few rain drops but looks like it may clear for us later. Lunch is coming up next before a restful afternoon. Everyone is doing very well with the altitude and hiking. Tomorrow we will head to our high camp before heading to the summit. Thanks for following along!
We had a great day and hike to Shira camp. Shira is at 12,500ft and is a beautiful hike through trees and a rocky ridge up to the Shira plateau. We woke to an extremely beautiful morning today with great views of Shira and of Mt Meru. Today we are heading to Baranco. Everyone is doing great!
