Amazing experience and a real challenge! Did the 6 days and 5 nights trek and should have done an extra day for acclimatization. Overall I did summit even though it took a bit longer than expected. Breathing in thin air is hard and it was super windy. Pictures did come out great since there was no fog and the sky was clear.

Huge achievement to get up here! Loved it all! Experiencing the changes in the climate and the environment were amazing! Freezing nights, and the days slowly got colder! Summit night was hard but well worth it!best experience of my life!

Absolutely amazing trip. Took advantage of the 6 day ascent/2 day descent so as to take advantage of time to acclimatize to altitude. Did hike unmediated although I became profoundly dizzy and hypoxic after about 17,500 ft. You CAN ascend faster but we chose this route for beauty of the jungle as well as time to really take in the hike. I could go on and on. A trip of a lifetime for me.

Hike of a lifetime. We did it in 5 days and loved the route and the ability to do it quickly based on our limited time in Tanzania. We used Summit Africa and couldn't have been happier.

Loved this route. Great if you have others in your group who may need more time to acclimate to the altitude; depending on the time of year it can get very cold during the nights and especially on the summit. (My water was freezing in the hydration bladder so I had to hike with the bladder inside my jacket) Choose a local outfitter to guide your group, it provides much needed employment to the people who live near here. We went with Zara Tours and they were great!
