LONGER KILIMANJARO ROUTES COST MORE
Obviously the fewer days spent on the mountain, the smaller the expense. This is because the longer you spend on the climb the higher the wages of the crew looking after your group. It also means more money towards food and other supplies. But when engaging on an expedition like climbing Kilimanjaro, we advise you not to try to cut costs everywhere. You should be thoughtful about matters that could affect your health and safety, your enjoyment of the trip (many of us will only get to do this epic feat once in our lives), and your chances of succeeding in summiting the mountain.
Not everyone who climbs Kilimanjaro reaches the top, usually because they develop acute mountain sickness (AMS) symptoms and must descend. AMS symptoms include nausea, dizziness and headaches. A key reason for developing AMS is not providing your body enough time to acclimatise. An extra day of ‘climb high, sleep low’ might be all that it takes for your climb to be successful, so we really do recommend thinking through your day count carefully before opting for the shorter hike just to save money.
