Climbing Kilimanjaro is a real challenge due to the altitude, rate of ascent and different temperatures. During an average climbing day you will walk 6-7 hours. If you are healthy and fit it is absolutely within reach. There are many things you can do to increase your chances to reach the summit and to make sure you enjoy the trek. It’s important you take your time. Don’t hike too fast so your body has time to adapt and acclimatize. Being in good shape also makes the climb much easier. Go hiking a few months before the climb, especially multiple day hikes are excellent training. But also running and aerobic exercise are a good preparation. It is always difficult to predict who will be affected by altitude sickness. What you can do to prevent altitude sickness is to take an extra day to adjust (between day 3 and day 4). If you stay an extra day in the Horombo Hut you give your body more time to acclimatize. This will increase the chance of reaching the summit successfully. The price for an extra day are $ 329 per person.
