Olga Rumyantseva, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Tanzania:
Hello everyone from Tanzania! The first group did not have time to leave, as the second group of those wishing to climb Kilimanjaro had already arrived. This time we have a large team, which decided to start by calling itself "Red Suitcases".
So, today we started our journey, starting from the gates of the national park and reaching the Machame camp at an altitude of 3000 meters. It had been raining since the morning, which accompanied us almost the whole way. Only at the end did it stop, and even the sun came out. The weather is disgusting, that's for sure. The forecasts are disappointing. But we do not lose optimism and try to have fun to the fullest.
