Day 1 Mandara Hut (2,700 m)

In the Morning our Mountain Guide & Crew support will arrive and meet you up at the hotel for a quick briefing and after you will be transferred by a vehicle to Kilimanjaro National Park’s Eastern entrance: Marangu Gate (1,860 M).

This being your first day at high altitude we strongly recommend the following:

  1. Abstain from taking any caffeine or alcohol.
  2. Drink often, at least an intake of 3 liters per day from time to time.
