What's the trail like on Mount Kilimanjaro?

Fun! We won’t pretend that there aren’t some steep sections on each route but on the whole these make up a very small part of the climb. The trail on each route is very well kept and maintained and the pace is never exhausting. After all you have to go slow to give your body a change to acclimatize. Recently the National Park authorities have done a great job on sections that had become badly eroded over the years. When you reach camp each afternoon you have plenty of time for a walk about, snapping photos and chatting with other climbers you are sure to recognize from day to day. Most campsites have small walks nearby that are worth exploring and various trails across the Shira Plateau could keep you amused for days.
