Product Description

Details

At 5895 metres (nearly 4 miles) above sea level, the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest point on earth that a walker can reach. Success is not guaranteed, because each person's response to rapid altitude gain is different. But you can improve your chances by a wise choice of route and itinerary, by thorough preparation and by taking care of yourself on the mountain. The author provides information and advice about how to choose your route; how to prepare and what to pack; how to prevent and manage altitude sickness; first-hand detailed descriptions of Marangu, Machame, Lemosho and Rongai routes; background on Tanzania, its wildlife and economy; a special feature on climbing Mount Meru to pre-acclimatise; and a map flap showing all ascent routes. The book has over 60 colour photographs, opens flat and is printed on rainproof paper.
