Team Diabetes is partnering with Charity Challenge to bring you a brand new & exciting event!
A 10 day adventure where you will trek to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa.
Your trek starts in the rainforests of Lemosho Glades and heads upwards as you acclimatize on Shira Plateau. From here you will catch a glimpse of your goal Kibo, Kilimanjaro's main ice-capped peak. You continue via the beautiful Southern Flank, Barranco Wall and Barafu Route.
On the final night before the summit trek you will rise at around midnight to commence the final trek in the moonlight up the scree slopes to Stella Point. Your aim is to reach this point by dawn and continue around the rim to the highest point, Uhuru Peak.
