5th– Barafu Camp (B, L, D)
Karanga camp offered you a great interval and it is time to approach the Barafu summit camp.
The trek is relatively short,allowing you to rest and eat at the campsite while preparing yourself mentally for the pending task. Make sure you eat and drink properly – p r e p a r e d . Summit night –Uhuru Peak. All the research, planning, booking, imagining, excitement and training will climax in your attempt for the Uhuru Peak summit. You will need all your mental and physical abilities for the steep ascent to the ‘roof of Africa’. Boost your energy level from the stars. Let the moon shine your path. Feel connected to everything around you and instead of seeing the mountain as an obstacle, become one with it. The first rays of light will give you that extra push you need at Stella Point and the reward that waits at Uhuru Peak will not be disappointing, perhaps rather life changing – e l e v a t e d .
As you know, there is minimal wifi on the mountain, so this post is posted on the proposed date of the climb (as well as subsequent posts). I will have an update below for when we return with added tidbits.
