Equipment On Kilimanjaro

Here is how you can tell the difference between a good trekking company or a budget trekking company. Do they have chairs that they bring up the mountain? Yes, that’s right, after walking for six to ten hours, the first thing you want to do when you arrive is to sit down and just relax. Your body, especially, is physically exhausted. Good chairs are a great commodity to have climbing the mountain.

Some people would argue that only wimps need chairs, but I will tell you something. Try not sitting in a chair for about seven days. That means you are either sitting in your tent eating, or sitting on the cold wet ground. A chair, with some fold out tables, is a great way to enjoy yourself up the mountain. You get to sit outside, eat your food, and enjoy the view from the mountain.
