Useful advice, tips and information

The posts in this category have been written with the aim of helping those seeking more in-depth information on a certain topic. For example, parents looking to take their child on Kili, or climbers of more advanced years looking to head to Kili and seeking any useful tidbits that may help them to the summit. Solo trekkers and female climbers are also catered for with posts just for them. Those who are looking to do more than just trek up the mountain – by cycling up it, or round its base, for example, or paragliding off its slopes, will also find posts for them here.

If you want a specific question answered, your best bet is to use the search facility, above. Or, as always, you can just get in touch and I’ll do my best to help.
