Expedition Climb...

15 day trip / 11 days trekking

Western Breach Route &

Crater Camp. It's Tough!

2019 Divider 699

To climb Kilimanjaro on our 15 day Kilimanjaro & Mount Meru Expedition itinerary (trekking for 11 days), you can join us on one of our Challenge Group departures.

This Kilimanjaro climb is for those looking for something longer, tougher, and an expedition style experience. We first tackle Mt Meru (4,562 metres - & Tanzania's 2nd highest mountain) over 4 days to acclimatise to the altitude - prior to tackling Kilimanjaro's most direct ascent route - the Umbwe Route - before heading across to the steep Western Breach - a route very few have attempted.

We spend a night sleeping at Crater Camp at 5,790m before our final Kilimanjaro summit attempt. This expedition climb is perfect to aspiring mountaineers with some scrambling experience - or for those who really want to push themselves and are prepared to get in shape before they head out.
