Day 5 - Mawenzi Tarn Camp 4,330m - 4-5 hours / 4km
Today is an early start, continuing along the gentle path that soon becomes steeper. Your efforts will soon be rewarded by a hot lunch at Mawenzi Tarn, which sits in a bowl, protected by the ridges and spires of Mawenzi. An afternoon walk allows time to explore and get used to the altitude, before an early dinner. Though today is a short day, we are mindful of the altitude and so we travel at a very steady pace, allow plenty of time to snack and keep hydrated. The great news is that we are rewarded with a spectacular campsite, arguably the most scenic on Kilimanjaro, which will be our home for two nights.
