Kilimanjaro 2007 – Day 4

Walk: Mawenzi Tarn Hut (4283m) to Kibo Hut (4690m)

Notes and photos from my Kilimanjaro diaries written in 2007. Uploaded to my blog in 2009 but posted with a 2007 publish date.

Eerie walk over the Saddle, and afro-alpine desert of screen with little gradient and just a few patches of moss and small flowers near rocks.

200 metres or so to our right, the Saddle dropped off and a vertical wall of cloud obscured the view.

Packed lunch at a collection of boulders that also seemed to be the base for some very nasty looking crows that must have known we would stop there for lunch.

Exhausting final push to Kibo Hut, arriving about 4:30pm, for an early dinner before settling down for some sleep before waking up at 11pm to get ready for our midnight departure for the summit.

    I’ve enjoyed reading your diary . I did the Rongai route too so the pictures have brought back lots of memories.
