Western Breach – Arrow Glacier Closed

As reported in March of 2006 “Western Breach Still Closed” there was an announcement last week that the Western Breach will remain closed indefinitely. This included the two trails that head up to Arrow Glacier Camp. The scientists fear that potentially another incident could happen again.

That means, one of the most popular, and hardest routes up Mt.Kilimanjaro, will no longer be able to cater to the high-end people who generally use that route. This Western Breach is generally used by a number of high-end companies who truly want to give their clients a great adventure – and charge high prices for it.

Now most clients will have to take the Machame Route.
