Click hereto know the weather forecast for Mount Kilimanjaro at the specific elevation of 5963 m

Kilimanjaro’s famous but rarely visited Crater Camp is located at 5790M on Kibo’s crater rim next to the Furtwrangler glacier, a short walk from Uhuru Peak (Roof of Africa). It is one of the most spectacular places on earth. The Crater Camp is set in alien environment of soft sand and vertical glaciers with excellent views of the ice walls of the Furtwangler Glacier the Reusch Crater and ash pit.
Getting to the Crater Camp incurs considerable extra cost when compared to the more conventional treks on Kilimanjaro because of the extra work for the porters who have to undertake to carry food and camping equipment to such high altitude. A night at the Crater Camp is the highlight of the ascent of the mountain.
