The journey was very tough and very tiring, some of the member fell sick on the way and their condition scared even our guiders and they wanted to take them down. But none was taken down till we reached the last station of Kibo. On 5th September we were at Kibo hut ready to climb to the top at night. When the night sets up at around 11:30 pm we woke up and prepared ourself ready to finish our last climbing session. This night was tough to every participant and only five out of nine participant made to the top with only one lady out of four ladies.Expedition DiaryOn the way we monitor changes of the landscape from forest, moral land, desert and finally ice atop the mountain. We came to realise vegetation cover from the low land has much to contribute on the long term presence of the Kilimanjaro snow as it’s the only source of precipitation and humid condition to the top of Kibo.
We realised this the day we stayed at Horombo hut where we saw cleary how movement of wind from low land region moves up the mountain and help to form the snow cover atop the mountain. It’s then came to our mind that doing reafforestration and afforestration procedure around the mountain area will be of great help to long term existance of this Highest Africa standing free Mountain.
We are now asking your support on making sure that Kilimanjaro mountain continue to stay green. Rescue snow of Africa is now on the second phase at which we are planning to conduct a workshop to raise awareness of the public on how critical the situation is atop the mountain. We are also going to make society aware on the importance of taking care of the prestigious natural heritage. Lastly we shall put measures which can help to reduce the speed of reatread and put them into action to help rescue the snow of Africa.
