The climb begins with a walk through pristine forest and includes two nights camped at the beautiful heights of Barranco to allow for acclimatization at the critical elevation of 12,800 feet and finally traveling to the summit in the alpine desert. Before attempting the summit, they will spend an unforgettable night at 18,700ft/5699m in the mountain’s crater. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate a birthday!

Share in the excitement and follow along as we quest for the highest point on the African continent. Stay tuned!
