Got a bucket list wish to fulfill before the end of the year, such as a Christmas climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro (“Kili” to the pros)? How about inviting a friend along with the trek as a holiday gift? Who wouldn't want to wake up and see the snows of Kilimanjaro on Christmas morning.
Well, Tusker Trail, a world-class adventure travel company that conducts guided Kilimanjaro climbs, is offering a special 13-day climb of MT. Kilimanjaro that summits Kilimanjaro on Christmas Eve. The holiday Kilimanjaro climb takes the Lemosho Route on a life-changing trek on December 24, 2013 and lets you wake up Christmas morning at Crater Camp.
The Lemosho Route is one of the most popular on Kili and offers a longer itinerary that gives climbers the chance to acclimatize slowly and steadily to the altitude. The extended climbing time that is planned into the itinerary increases the chances of each traveler summiting the mountain. Fuel for hikers is provided by Culinary Institute of America, adding an extra degree of comfort to the experience. Tusker’s professional, medically-trained mountain guides monitor climbers every step of the way and are considered the best in the field.
The Christmas Kili climb departs December 15th, 2013 and costs $5,190 a person at www.tusker.com .
