Surviving Kilimanjaro – A Story on the Marangu Route

Here is a great story by Erik Trinidad that I published a long time ago – an older version of this Africa blog. Read Surviving Kilimanjaro. Erik only makes it to Gilman’s Point, which is 99.999 the top of Kilimanjaro, but not technically is not all the way there. Needless to say, Erik is good writer and describes the trials and tribulations of climbing Africa’s highest mountain.

Either way, Erik did one of the most bad-ass epic trips before it became popular. If you ever get a few spare days of reading, read The Global Trip, a sixteen month trip around the world.
