MT. KILIMANJARO 7 DAY CLIMB & 2 DAYS VOLUNTEERING
(Minimum $1,000 non-refundable deposit)
Your K2 adventure begins in Arusha.
Located at the foot of the world famous Mt. Kilimanjaro, Arusha is a mid-sized city known for it’s low-key atmosphere and overall cleanliness.
While the main attraction is Africa’s tallest mountain, your time in Arusha will include one of a kind volunteering opportunities that will bring you closer to the locals and make you feel like a part of this wonderful city, its culture and its people.
The Magnificent Mt. Kilimanjaro
Mt. Kilimanjaro’s snowy peak is a sight to behold. Rising over 19,000 ft., scaling this giant is no small feat.
While only half of those who attempt to reach its peak make it, our K2 Adventures success record stands at 96%! In short, you are in the best of hands.
Our hike will be on the Machame trail on Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Tanzania and Africa. Mt. Kilimanjaro has three distinct volcanic cones, two of which are extinct and one that could erupt again.
It lies within the 756 square km Kilimanjaro National Park, one of the few places on earth that encompasses every ecological life zone—tropical jungle, savannah, desert, montane forests, and alpine zone. Get ready to see one of the most magnificent views of the Milky Way you’ve ever seen. The view alone is worth the trip!
The climb itself is steady rather than exhaustive, but challenging nonetheless. As you ascend, you’ll literally walk through every ecological life zone possible making you feel like you’re in a completely different place from one day to the next.
Once you reach the summit, you can look out over the world and experience a sense of accomplishment that few ever will. It feels like you’re standing at the top of an island surrounded by a sea of clouds!
