Back in 2012, a group of adventurous friends set out to climb Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa, completely barefoot. Having been there myself, this was something that I would have thought impossible, but never the less, they managed to reach the summit, hiking the entire way without shoes. Now, more than two years after their expedition, the team has released a wonderful documentary about their climb.
The entire 37+ minute film can be found below, and I think you’re going to love it. It is a wonderfully crafted doc that will inspire you in numerous ways. So sit back, set the video to full-screen mode, get comfortable, and allow yourself to be transported to Africa, and Kilimanjaro, for a little while.

That is amazing. So inspiring to see just how much the human body can withstand, and how powerful our own will is. Thank you for sharing! I would love to post this to my blog as well 🙂
Go for it! I'm sure the filmmakers won't mind one bit! 🙂
I did, and I had my entire family watch it!
I hope they don't mind my positive comments, and sharing it with people 😉
