IMG guide Phunuru just checked in over on Kilimanjaro from Karanga Camp. The Team had just enjoyed a hot lunch at camp after a great hike this morning. The Barranco Wall was challenging yet fun and the Team made excellent progress today. It was a relatively short day (around 4 hours) and Phunuru and team arrived at Karanga Camp in the early afternoon. Sitting on a broad ridge above the Karanga River, from this camp you can look over and see Mt. Meru to the east. Looking the other direction the (remaining) glaciers of Kili are in full view for all to see. Its another neat spot and the sunrises here are spectacular. Thats one of the things I love about Kili is that each camp is different and provides unique views of both Kili and the surrounding geography. Everyone continues to be in good health and it looking forward to the short day up to high camp tomorrow. Its only about a 3.5 hour hike tomorrow from Karanga (at 13,300 feet) up to Barafu High Camp (15,100 feet). Pretty easy walking, even in the thinning air. The team is making excellent progress and I know there will be a lot of excitement at camp tomorrow! All continues to go smoothly for Phunuru and team over on Kilimanjaro.
