There are literally hundreds of videos on the Internet of people successfully climbing to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa. After all, thousands of us make that trip each and every year.
But what about those who aren’t successful? What is that experience like? In this video, we join one such trekker, who takes us along for his hike up the tallest mountain in Africa. But unlike all of those other clips, which include celebrations on the summit, this hiker doesn’t make it to the top, but is instead forced to head down in darkness.
Not everyone summits and its always good to keep your expectations in check just to be on the safe side. Summit or no, Kilimanjaro is still a grand adventure.
