Arduous but accessible, technical skills aren't required for a Mt. Kilimanjaro climb, making it the most attempted ascent of all the Seven Summits of the world. So, what exactly does it take to successfully trek to the 19,341' summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, The Roof of Africa?  Proper preparation, ample time to acclimate, selecting the right route and most of all, the expert guidance and encouragement of a team of seasoned climbing guides and porters. What will you gain from such a trek? A deep sense of accomplishment and unforgettable panoramas of the surrounding Mt. Kilimanjaro National Park.

Join our travel experts at the next Escape Your Everyday as they share stories from their own successful climbs and discuss various considerations in preparing for your own trekking adventure.  We'll cover:

- Outfitting recommendations from Arc'teryx adventurers

- Selecting the best time of year to climb

- Training for a high altitude trip while here in Washington

- Maintaining health and well-being while traveling on a physically demanding adventure

- Pre- and post-climb safari options

A complimentary tasting of Elsom Cellars award-winning wines will be served plus event attendees will be able to join a raffle for artful Arc'teryx gear to outfit you for your trek!
