Kilimanjaro Climb


Kilimanjaro Climb

Mount Kilimanjaro is the world’s tallest free-standing mountain, with its highest point reaching 19,341 ft. Known as the “Rooftop of Africa,” it is also one of the Seven Summits of the World. It will be a challenging eight-day journey using the Lemosho route to summit Uhuru Peak, battling altitude and five different ecological zones (Cultivation, Rainforest, Heather-Moorland, Alpine Desert, Arctic). The entire trip will be carbon offset and self-funded by the climbers.

According to scientists, Mt. Kilimanjaro’s glaciers may disappear entirely in the next 20 years as a result of climate change. 

Awethentic Journeys will witness this change first-hand and will document the glacier as they climb to the top of the summit. Awethentic Journeys will also use the trip to help promote reforestation projects in Asia.

Lemosho Glades route: an unspoiled, remote little used and beautiful way up to the Shira Plateau. It can either be used to gain the western Breach route or followed by the Kibo south circuit to gain the easier Barafu




Memorable Moments

Among the towering peaks and rugged landscapes of Kilimanjaro, countless moments of awe-inspiring beauty and personal triumph await. Picture yourself waking up to the gentle embrace of the sunrise, its golden hues painting the vast African sky as you prepare for another day of ascent. Feel the camaraderie with fellow climbers, a diverse tapestry of individuals united by a shared goal. As you navigate the challenging terrain, there’s a moment when you pause to catch your breath, turning to see how far you’ve come and how limitless the world below appears. And finally, the pinnacle of your journey – standing atop Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa, as tears of joy and accomplishment mingle with the thin air. These are the moments etched into memory, the moments that define not only your Kilimanjaro climb but also your connection with the remarkable world that lies beyond the clouds.
