Kilimanjaro - Day 4


Day 4:              MOIR CAMP to BARRANCO CAMP
13000’ ~ 3962m ∙ 4.3 mi ~ 7km∙ 4-6 hrs
Today we take an acclimatization trek to the Lava Tower at 15,000’~4,500m. Shortly after the tower, we come to the second junction which brings us up to the Arrow Glacier. Following our rest at the tower, we decend upon the enormous Senecio forest reaching waterfall prior to finishing at Barranco Camp. Tonight’s camp is in the shadow of the massive Barranco wall with the breeze often carrying clouds from the Barranco Valley.
