Elevation: 3860 to 4200 meters
Time: 4 hours
American journalist from Russia Today TV flying Russian flag
Piles of rock shows the way
One step at a time. Elevation is quite high and many people have altitude sickness.
It looks more like a desert than a mountain.
Finally we got to Barafu Hut Camp.
Porters are cheap and plenty so they carry heavy duty gas cartridge.
Air pressure is only 20% of the air at sea level. You can see what happens to packages.
Day 6: Summit of Mt. Kilimajaro (Uhuru Peak)
Elevation: 4600 to 5895
Time: 11 hours
Ready for summit
Barafu Hut on descend
As you go down you can feel that it’s much easier to breath
It takes five black people to get one white person to the top. Three porters, one cook and one guide
Finish!!! We did it!!!
