At a colossal 5,895m, Mt. Kilimanjaro is one of the largest volcanoes to ever break through the Earth’s crust. Your challenge is to clamber above the sea of clouds to its summit.

You’ll begin in the lush rainforests of the Lemosho Glades, climbing towards the Shira Plateau – the perfect spot to acclimatise. From here you can see your goal: the ice-capped peak of Kibo.


You’ll follow the impressive Southern Flank, Barranco Wall and Barafu Route to the summit. Groups have excellent success rates (96%) for reaching the summit, however Kilimanjaro – with its 1,000m ascent and 2,000m descent – is not to be underestimated. This is one of the toughest but most exhilarating adventures you will ever embark on.

This event is organised by our friends at Charity Challenge and other dates are available.
