One of the better commissions of my career, thus far, brought me to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Together with the wonderful people from Bergwelten Magazine, we spent 8 days on the mountain and climbed it via the Umbwe Route. This route travels the northern circuit of the mountain. It is one of the harder and longer routes, which means we hardly ever saw any other person except on summit day on the summit (you will see how that looked like later in the post).
It was a truly magical experience and I only had to vomit once (3rd day during acclimatisation) but after that I felt amazing and had no more problems with the altitude! Yay!
