Sergey Larin,  the guide of the group from Tanzania: The “Siafu” team news. Today, February 15, we moved from Camp Shira to Camp Baranko 4000m, via Lava Tower (4600m). There was lunch on Lava Taur. And after lunch, it rained heavily again. We went down to the Baranko camp along the rain rivers.  The descent reminded me of Papua New Guinea at times. I couldn’t remember such rains on Kilimanjaro.  I've never been here during the rainy season, though. Kilimanjaro is covered in snow. If this goes on, you'll see that the glaciers will recover.

Sergey Larin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:  The group of the 7 Summits Club "Siafu" climbed yesterday to the Machame camp at an altitude of 2900 m. It rained all day, which was according the forecast. And quite unusual for February. At this time of year, I don't remember it raining  from the morning. But the rain did not affect the mood of the group. I am also glad that there are only three people on the route besides us. Which is also unusual for the peak of season. Today, 14.02, we continue to move to the Shira camp at an altitude of 3900 meters.
