We publish the story of the traveler and photographer Sergey Shakuto on how to climb a mountain on foot and fly down a paraglider!
The assault itself consists of two stages. The first is the climb to the plateau of the Kilimanjaro crater, there is also a high-altitude camp. The second is the climb after a short rest to the top of the crater’s wall, the Uhuru peak, from where a stunning view of the Kili crater, its glaciers and the endless ocean of clouds opens somewhere very far below.
There are glaciers on top! And they are pretty big. Hang down to about 4800m. Of course, they are melting away, but they say that this process began a hundred years ago, and maybe even earlier. Do not believe alarmists when looking at photographs where several years ago the summit was covered with snow, and now there are supposedly only small foci with ice. We personally found the peak in these two states in just a couple of days. The first night in the crater fell quite a lot of snow, as a result we were able to look at these lunar landscapes with and without snow.
