Trek Mount Kilimanjaro, Lisa

Climb the highest freestanding mountain in the world!

Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the African continent at 5,896m. Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty African plains; huge permanent glaciers flow down from the summit, spectacular views and beautiful ice formations are the reward for pushing your limits both physically and mentally.

This 10 day challenging trek takes the Machame route, allowing gradual acclimatisation to the altitude and an excellent chance of reaching the summit. We pass through thick forest, moorland and scree en route to Uhuru Peak, the highest point.

We have teamed up with experienced challenge operators Discover Adventure for this trek, who also offer training weekends and can arrange add on extensions to the trek if desired.

MDUK will provide you with support in the run up to your challenge to help you with reaching your fundraising target. Not only will you gain great personal satisfaction in taking on this challenge, but by reaching your fundraising target you will be raising enough money to fund over 100 hours of research.
