Our trip to Mount Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar has become annual tradition. We are also going to Mount Everest Basecamp next year. Find out what's driving us and how you too can be a part of this.
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
