The Kilimanjaro Calculation

Berg Adventures has mapped out a day to day calculation of altitude, distance, and trekking time for the Lemosho route. This is a tool to give you a better idea of what to expect when climbing up to the top of Africa.

Here is an example:

Day 4 – Drive to Lemosho Glades 6890ft (2100 m). Meet local staff and porters. Hike to Big Tree Camp 9,200ft (2804m) in a beautiful old growth forest.

  • Altitude: 6,890ft (2100m) – 9,200ft (2804m)
  • Distance: 3 miles (5 km)
  • Trekking Time: 3-4 Hours
  • Overnight at Big Tree Camp

Of course there are always unforeseen circumstances on the day; multiple stops for photo opportunities, snacks, and storytelling along the trail, so the travel time may vary. Most important we tackle this trail pole pole (slowly) as to allow the body to properly acclimatize.
