Day 7: Back to civilization

Waking up after a successful summit day feels awesome and as we trekked down, my mind wondered about whether I should try to climb another mountain?

Our descent from Mweka Camp to Mweka Gate was about 15 km’s and took around three hours.

At the Mweka Gate, we finished the registration formalities (signing ourselves out of the national park) and received our certificates for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

Then it was just another three hours on a muddy track through a forest to Mweka Village, where a 4×4 was waiting for us to take us to the next adventure …  a week long safari as well as a climb of Ol Doinyo Lengai, a 2980m high active volcano, which means “the mountain of god” in Maasai language.

After thanking our team of guides, a cook and porters, taking some photos with them and of course, giving some well deserved tips, we were off to a hotel in Moshi, to enjoy a hot shower and a bed!
