Kilimanjaro: Waterfall & Team Enjoying the Views of Lava Tower

Elevation: 15,000'

Well, it’s a cloudy day on the trail but the group is hanging tough.  We’re having lunch at the Lava Tower (15’000’).  That means we are setting new altitude records for just about every one.  Tonight we will camp at Barranco where some of the giant plants that are unique to Kilimanjaro are concentrated.

Kilimanjaro: Waterfall & Team at Machame Camp

Posted by: Seth Waterfall | August 19, 2014

Elevation: 9,800'

All is well at Machame Camp! The team was really fired up this morning.  I was three minutes early to breakfast and I was the last to arrive. It’s great to be on a trip with such an organized team.

The drive to the gate was smooth and after checking in at the gate we started our trek.  The trail was a little slick and muddy but we didn’t get any rain along the way. Once we arrived in camp the crew had everything set up and ready to go. Everyone is now settling in for the night and getting ready for the hike up to Shira tomorrow.

Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Kilimanjaro

Greetings from Tanzania!  Our group is getting excited for the start of our trek.  All of us arrived yesterday evening and spent today sorting through gear and recovering from the long flights. We also spent some time chatting with the folks from Mark Tucker’s Kilimanjaro Climb and they all reported a great experience on the mountain.  Tomorrow we’ll get an early start and make our way to Kilimanjaro National Park.  It should be good times!
