This is back on my list. I have never climbed a mountain. Ever. Am I crazy for thinking of climbing Kilimanjaro?

I have climbed Kili and Meru in Tanzania - and I definitely preferred Mount Meru. Less people, 1/3 of the price - and way more beautiful. Kilimanjaro felt like crowded and like we were a bunch of ants on the same trail. But yeah, you do it so you can say "I did Kili" and also to test yourself. I also climbed to Ama Dablam base camp in Nepal - which is on same route to Everest Base camps - that was incredible - the villages and the culture you see on the Himalayas is incomparable to the bare - unpopulated mountains in national parks in Africa. I also climbed Mt Cameroon - and LOVED it because it was like a geology wonder park. Like nothing i have ever seen before - incredible.

Mountain climbing is something I definitely have to do and soon too. It's on my life's to-do list. I have no preference between Kilimanjaro and Everest. In fact, I would like to do both. :D
