There are different kinds of people, but they can be broadly divided into two categories – those who love to take risks, and those who don’t. Most importantly, safety is a must to the latter. But even though adventurous people can take risks, it doesn’t mean they don’t care about safety at all. It is just that they know that their life could be in a certain degree of danger. But instead of panicking or becoming nervous or afraid, they not only remain calm and collected but actually thrive under such situations. The people who love adventure sports are of the first type, the risk takers and go-getters. These people are generally competitive but also have an inner compulsion to get things what they want, to achieve what they must. They cannot settle for anything less. It is precisely these kinds of people that should try to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. It is no mean task to achieve this, but only truly adventurous and daredevil kinds of people will be able to pull it off.
But there is also help. It does not always have to be one person up against everything. It is good to take assistance from those good at something and with experience. One should talk to people who have done trekking before about the experience. Not everybody is suitable for this kind of an exercise though. Just having an adventurous mind isn’t enough. Also, just having the will doesn’t suffice either, although will is very important. Even the strongest and physically capable of men can fail to Climb mt Kilimanjaro. First of all, the person needs to have a strong heart and no problems with breathing. Anyone with the slightest asthma cannot take part in such exercises. Secondly, they must not have any other major physical problems either, like kidney or lungs failure. These too can cause enough damage to their health in harsh conditions which can even prove to be fatal.
The trekking team always wants to take physically strong people along, as it is also a matter of their own safety. They would want to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro with people who are at least equally strong as them, if not stronger. There are always possibilities of contingencies like bad weather, for example a storm or an avalanche even. People have to mentally and physically prepared for these emergencies. That is why the adventure companies that organize the mt Kilimanjaro climb events always ask the guides to take necessary medical and ration supplies with them.
Putting up tents and surviving cold chilly nights during Kilimanjaro climb will be needed to be done. On these occasions, skills and dexterity will be required which can only be there with those who have loads of experience and have done this so many times. There are several routes of going up the mountain and wonderful and picturesque scenes can be seen. The views of southern side of the glaciers adoring the volcanic cone are particularly attractive to tourists and trekkers. There are some routes which are less traveled and are also better because ratio of guides to tourists is high.
