/ kilimanjaro trek question
I've done the EBC trek and we stopped at villages all the way through, so hydration wasn't an issue, but looking at our trek itinerary, we don't go through many villages, so if anyone has done the trek ( Rongai Route )what's the gen' with water and hydration, especially as you are in a hotter climate.
Don't worry. You have to have a guide and probably assistant guide, cook and porters. Water will be given to you each morning. Think about it, if you dehydrate, you don't make it to the top, they have a poorer Success-record, they get less work, they have a smaller income in the future. You will have enough water don't worry.
Water will not be/ should not be a problem... The stampede up and down the hill is probably of more concern.
Have fun and enjoy it.
I flew past Kilimanjaro last week on the way from Nairobi to Dar. You'll be pleased to know that it's still got some snow on it.
Do not worry about the negative comment about a stampede. It would be interesting to know when, whether and which route the commentator took. The Rongai route will be much quiter than an EBC trek.
Enjoy. It will be a great experience.
If you want more detailed and constructive information, you are welcome to contact me.
Do not forget to get your Yellow Fever / Cholera certificate before you go. It is about the only thing that is checked at Customs, and could result in a return flight, but more likely a "fine" of at least US$ 50.
