Mt. Kilimanjaro: Justman & Team Camped Beneath the Barranco Wall

Today was a fantastic day for the team as we achieved greater acclimatization. We entered the dry and rocky terrain of the Highland Desert Zone where large volcanic boulders dot the landscape. Our trail gently ascended the Shira Plateau and we the reached our high point near Kilimanjaro’s Lava Tower at 14,900’.

After a long break to soak up the thin air we descended into the Barranco Valley. We are now comfy and cozy in our SlingFin dining tent drinking hot tea and eating popcorn at 12,800’. Everyone is having a great time and we are looking forward to another great day on Kilimanjaro.
