We are going in June this year. Would like to hear your stories about the trip once you've returned though. I.e. planning tips, how the porters carrying bags and weight etc. works.

I did Machu Picchu last year and it was quite simple. They give you a duffle bag and you stuff it with a max of 6 kg and the porters carry the duffle bags.

For kili, I've been told they carry our backpacks or duffle bags although I'm not sure how convenient that is for them to carry half filled backpacks considering they have a 15kg overall weight restriction.

In any event, have a great climb and be sure to Summit.

Hi
I have been with Gadventure since 2006. Traveling: Peru,Argentina Brazil,Thiland,India,Nepal,Camboidia,Vietnam,Costa Rica and now...Africa in March. Peru hike was good I did it in 2006. Small back pack and porters to carry most of our things. Porters will do most of the carrying in Akilli climb. I wont take too many cloths to change into porters will carry sleeping bag,toiletries,little clothing... few days will be a challange for sure and I sure hope to make it to the top and tell you all about it.
After Akilli climb I am off flying to Zanzibar joining another G-tour for 5 days snorkle/scuba then a 6 hrs ferry to Tanzania for Safari for 5 days with another G-tour group. I thought that if i am already in Africa,I should see and do as much as I can. Gap is the best tour company ever. I am a #1 fan.

We will be in touch B"H
