Tusker Trail Announces Dates and Routes For 2014 and 2015 Kilimanjaro Climbing Seasons
Make plans to climb Kilimanjaro with veteran adventure travel company, Tusker Trail
Lemosho Route: The Lemosho Route is one of their most popular climbs as it is a longer itinerary that gives climbers the chance to acclimatize more readily to the altitude. The extended climbing time that is planned into the itinerary increases the chances of each traveler summiting the mountain. Lemosho is also one of the more scenic routes up Kilimanjaro and does not require a midnight summit climb. This exhilarating trek includes 10 days of climbing through some of the most pristine and diverse terrain in the world.
Kili 360: Kili 360, the Northern Circuit, is Tusker Trailís newest route on Kilimanjaro. Guests take 11 days to traverse the entire mountain, hiking over the untouched northern slopes. On this trip, the area is unpopulated and the views are nothing short of spectacular. This route offers climbers the chance to witness a truly pristine wilderness that is rarely trekked. This trip is a longer duration and offers climbers the chance to acclimatize well, making for an easier summit and a truly rewarding experience.
Machame Route: Machame is one of the older and more popular routes on Kilimanjaro. It is a shorter climb than Lemosho and Kili 360. Because of the popularity, Machame gets incredibly crowded; especially during the high seasons. On this route, climbers start their summit climb at midnight.
Umbwe Route: Umbwe is one of the least climbed routes on Kilimanjaro, which makes it very appealing. Tuskerís expert guides prefer this to the Machame Route because it is significantly less crowded. For the first two days, itís rare that climbers see other people. The rate of ascent is exactly the same as the other routes that Tusker offers and allows climbers who do not have extra time to summit safely. On this route, the summit climb begins at midnight.
The Marangu Legacy Route: The Marangu route was the original route climbed by the first Europeans more than 120 years ago, and the only route that Owner Eddie Frank climbed during the first ten years of his Kilimanjaro career. Anchored in history, Eddie has resurrected this legacy climb for those who want to trek the traditional direct route. On the Marangu Legacy climb, participants stay in A-frame huts instead of tents.
In addition to an unparalleled safety record and a variety of routes, the awesome mountain food created by the Culinary Institute of America, contributes to an unforgettable Kilimanjaro climbing experience with Tusker Trail. Tuskerís professional, medically-trained mountain guides monitor climbers every step of the way and are considered the best on the mountain. Their guides are drilled and mountain-ready to save lives during high altitude emergencies, using effective medical evacuation techniques. Climbers can be assured that Tusker Trailís guides receive the most extensive medical training in the business.
Tusker Trail also offers Tanzania safari extensions. Climbing dates for 2014 and 2015 are available. Tusker Trail also offers treks in Mongolia, Bhutan, and Mount Everest Base Camp. For more information, visit www.tusker.com
