Gard's Kilimanjaro experience
Machame route, September 2003

In September 2003 I had the pleasure of going to Tanzania to hike on the highest mountain in Africa: Kilimanjaro. We used Marangu hotel as our tour guide and we went for the Machame route. On these pages you will find information about my experience when it comes to high altitude trekking.The links on the left hand side will guide you to everything from day by day diary with lots of pictures taken on the mountain to information about cost, equipment used and so on. I hope that this site can be of help to others who are planning to hike on the highest free standing mountain in the world. And did I make it to Uhuru Peak at 5895 meters? I guess you'll have to read to find out :-)
