6 Days Kilimanjaro
Climb Machame Route Via Western Breach
It was very
unfortunately to loose some of few people during the Mount Kilimanjaro
trekking using the Western Breach path to the Roof to of Africa. The cause
was the landslide which brought about covering summiteers that had hides
themselves inside the caves. For this reason we highly recommend people
not use the caves for any purposes . To day the route (path) is opened
and allows again alpiners to explore the most adventurous route on Kilimanjaro.
