Water during Kilimanjaro Climbing

We provide drinking water throughout the entire climb.  Of course getting safe water on Kilimanjaro is always a big concern for our hikers.

At low elevations where streams and running water are found, water is collected, boiled and filtered.  At higher elevations, the water is filtered and purified using chlorine tablets.
