Health Precautions On Kilimanjaro

sickguy.jpgIf you are climbing any mountain – not just Kilimanjaro or Mt. Kenya, you should always keep this in mind.

Do not go higher than 10,000 feet if you have any of the following conditions:

1. A nose bleed
2. A cold
3. A sore throat
4. Respiratory infection
5. A High Temperature
6. A cough

From time to time on Kilimanjaro, you might wake up with a sore throat or a small cough, but if it persists for more than 24 hours, you should get down the mountain as soon as possible.
