MORE than 300 people are expected to climb Mount Kilimanjaro this year, through a special annual campaign which is part of the Tanzania Mainland’s Uhuru celebrations and promoting Tanzania’s tourism sector.
This was stated at the end of the week by the Acting Kilimanjaro National Parks (KINAPA)’s Chief Conservator Ms Gladness Ng’umbi during the launching of the third season of the campaign which was held in Moshi, Kilimanjaro Region.
“In order to achieve that number this season, the leadership of KINAPA in collaboration with the organisers of this campaign has added other climbing routes, whereby apart from climbing through the Marangu Gate, participants will this year also be able to climb Mount Kilimanjaro through Machame and Lemosho gates,” she said.
“By using the three gates, the number of people who will climb Mount Kilimanjaro through this campaign is expected to increase from 165 in 2021 and 200 last year, to 320 climbers this year.”
Ms Ng’umbi said that the increase of the two routes will also provide an opportunity for climbers of the highest mountain in Africa to see other types of attractions apart from those seen by using the Marangu route alone.
