Requirements on Kilimanjaro Climbing Kilimanjaro does not require high mountaineering skills, but it requires a high level of endurance and altitude tolerance. The walking times of each daily stage are approximately 5-7 hours (usually 12-14 hours on the summit day) in extremely varied terrain. Marshes, thickets, rocks, and scree must be overcome. The increasingly thin air, cold, and steeply ascending path of the last stage to the summit demand good physical fitness and conditioning. It is recommended to have your heart and circulation checked before your trip since exertion and high altitude significantly strain the body.

Additional Notes: Traveling to a developing country can involve unforeseen circumstances. Tolerance, patience, and camaraderie are important requirements for a good tour and unforgettable experiences. An adventurous spirit will help you overcome tour delays or even changes due to bad weather, governmental orders, technical malfunctions, or other reasons. On the Kilimanjaro climb, there are very simple squat toilets at the camps. We offer a mobile, private toilet for an additional fee of 250 USD.

It is the participant's responsibility to get health and accident insurances that cover for this trip.
