Acclimatization is the process by which the body becomes accustomed to the lower availability of oxygen in the air and can only be achieved by spending time at various levels of altitude before progressing higher. So let’s dive into a discussion of the best Kilimanjaro Acclimatization for Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. You should then feel you have the Intel necessary to flex your decision-making powers and choose a Kilimanjaro route that’s right for you!

Acclimatisation is about letting your body adapt at a reasonable pace to thinner air before taking it any higher. Kilimanjaro Routes with a good acclimatisation profile is thus one that doesn’t push you to climb too high, too quickly.

Do you need to acclimate for Kilimanjaro? The best acclimatization for Climbing Kilimanjaro needs to have a minimum of 8 days on the mountain. ... In order to adjust and acclimatize to low oxygen, your body needs time. If you fail to acclimatize well lower down, then you will struggle higher up.

How do you acclimate before Kilimanjaro? We recommend sleeping overnight for 6-8 hours at a simulated altitude of 10,500 feet for 6-8 weeks for proper pre-Acclimatization For Kilimanjaro. Climbers can also pre-acclimatize while exercising by wearing an exercise mask during light workouts.

You should be spending five nights below 4,000m/ 13,123 feet on Kilimanjaro. This level of acclimatization gives you the best chance of making a successful Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.  Above 5,500m/ 18,044 feet you enter the lower levels of the death zone. To clarify, this means your body will slowly be dying above this height and cannot fully adjust to the low levels of oxygen. Having better Kilimanjaro Acclimatization lower down helps you reach the summit and get safely back down below 5,500m/ 18,044 feet quickly is very important. This can only be achieved by having the right acclimatization.

Before you attempt for Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, it is therefore most important that you have a good grasp of the risks associated with climbing at altitude. Learning how to identify and manage the symptoms of Kilimanjaro Altitude Sickness is among the most important steps in preparing for a Kilimanjaro Climb. With this in mind, Kilele Climb have produced the above Kilimanjaro Climbing Guide which we hope will help you better understand the risks of climbing at altitude, and how to reduce them.

Finally, if time and money allow, you should consider a pre-acclimatisation climb or safari. Climbing Meru beforehand gives you a chance to adjust to the altitude before you’ve even set foot on Kilimanjaro. An altitude-acclimatising safari, involving trekking in the Ngorongoro Highlands, is an alternative to the post-climb safari that many climbers anyway take.
