CLICK HERE and read more about the best months to climb Kilimanjaro. On an annual basic 42% that attempt to climb Kilimanjaro are successful. Surprised? So if 58% of people are now making it to the top of Kilimanjaro, what is the problem.
My assessment from climbing Kilimanjaro 23 times is the follow:
1). Poor acclimatization schedule (8 days are needed for climbing Kilimanjaro)
2). Shocking pacing each day by guides
3). People not having the physical conditioning
4). Poor strength, endurance and preparation for the climb
5). Poor food
6). Poor clothing
7). Poor hydration
8). Poor pacing/ breathing techniques of teams up the mountain
9). Poor local guides who don’t understand western climbers
10). Poor equipment, safety and tents
