Reach the summit at sunrise 6:00am and celebrate before descending down to Mweka.

Kilimanjaro summiting day is the toughest day that most Kili trekkers have ever experienced. You will have ascended 3,600feet to Uhuru and descended 7,200 feet in a about of 11-14 hours.

However, the descending is far less tiring. We advice that you have a little rest once in awhile as you continue your way down to Mweka Camp.
