Hike for acclimatization before Kilimanjaro
Hi, I will be hiking Mount Kilimanjaro on the Machame route next August with a friend, but we both live at sea level, so we are afraid of the altitude sickness. We do not have many chances of trekking above 3000 m anywhere near our location.
Maybe some hike to the 1st and 2nd camps on any of the other Kili routes instead of Machame? Is there any route with a very different landscape so that we can have another impression of the mountain?
Thanks in advance.
