Tanzania 11 November: Horombo Hut - Kibo Hut

Kilimanjaro day 4 - Horombo - Kibo Hut

Kili and blue sky are waiting for us.

Sun is strong up there, so it is wise to take care.

Once again my deepest admiration for the porters!

Having fun with our guides

20 liter bucket on the head plus a heavy backpack...

Today was the toughest day for them - once because of the altitude (which is probably the smaller issue) and second because today they had to carry 240 liters of water up the 9k to Kibo Hut because we passed the last water point on our way but of course still needed a lot of water on the way up.

Haryaksha: business as usual:)

keep smiling!

friends...

Brooke allways cheerful and a great companion to our group!
