Mt Mkubwa - 2,780 m - 4 hours trekking
After a good breakfast we transfer by road to the West of the Kilimanjaro National Park and the Londorossi Gate. On arrival we meet the rest of our team, including our guides, cooks and porters. We register for the trek and our bags are weighed to ensure each is within the 15 kg limit. Finally it is here – the moment we have all been waiting for! We carry out some last minute checks before we are driven to the trail head, to begin trekking along a pristine route through the Lemosho Glades. We begin our trek through lush vegetation of the humid rainforest, the ascent is steady along a path which can get somewhat overgrown in places and it is often wet and muddy underfoot. We have some short breaks en route, with a picnic lunch before reaching our camp in the afternoon. Eventually we reach our camp at Mti Mkubwa (Big Tree Camp).
