Recently I heard from a group of 7 clients who managed to get to the summit of Kilimanjaro, Uhuru Peak. You can see their picture before the climb, when they are fresh, excited, and ready for the mountain, with their new trekking gear and a great attitude. And then you see their picture at the summit – exhausted, tired, cold, and ready to descend, as the 5 to 6 hour hike from Barafu Camp is one of the hardest parts of the trip.
While it’s always great to get to the legendary “you made it” sign on Kilimanjaro, most would admit, it’s always good to leave and get back down.
