Kilimanjaro 3 Key Reasons People Fail The Climb

Failures on MT. Kilimanjaro


Every Tourists that is planning to come to Tanzania for Mount Climbing have a goal of reaching the summit however there are cases where some don’t reach the summit and there are several reasons as to why most tourists don’t reach the summit. I want to highlight some of the reasons here such that you avoid such circumstances and prepare yourself for a great journey to Tanzania:


One of the most important significant factors that determine the success of a climbing safari in Tanzania is route selection. When you come to Tanzania for Mount Kilimanjaro climbing, there are designated routes or trails which were designed to ease your climbing experience. Climbing up the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro is so much organized, it is not a safari where you just go up the mountain and start finding your way to the summit-there are designated routes; there are about six routes to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro- Machame route, Marangu Route, Rongai Route, Lemosho Route, Umbwe route, and Northern circuit route.  You must read very well your itinerary to know the route which you are going to take. Each route is completely different from the rest in terms of the acclimatization, the days taken to climb and the various conditions. There are routes where accommodation is possible via huts and some don’t have such facilities. In essence, poor route selection is one of the prevailing factors for failures to reach the summit because it is easy to choose a route which is not convenient in terms of acclimatization and experience; such a route can easily bring about problems of altitude sickness if you are not prepared.


It is an essential part to travel with the best tour company. The tour company is very vital to your success because they are your ultimate guide to the Mount Kilimanjaro. Tour operators shall help you in making the right decision as regards to the itinerary, the climbing route, and what to carry and other aspects that shall determine the success of a safari.  If you choose an inexperienced tour company, they shall not be able to guide your properly and you may end up not reaching the summit because of your tour operator. If you want a certain success climbing safari story to Mount Kilimanjaro, I highly recommend choosing our company-Tanzania bound. Tanzania bound is one of the best Mount Kilimanjaro climbing experts, with us; you are assured of reaching the summit.


There is a measurable preparation which is necessary to ensure that you have the best climbing experience in Tanzania. You must ensure that you do great preparations such as being fit to improve chances of reaching the summit. Climbing the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro is not possible by car, don’t expect to just sit back and be driven until the summit; you have to trek some distance for some days to achieve your travel ambitions. People are used to traveling in cars and many rarely walk any distance. If you are that kind of traveler, it is better to start hiking at least some simple miles a day as part of your preparation. Stand a better chance of reaching the summit by booking your climbing safari with Kilimanjaro Bound.
