Kibo Hut on Mount Kilimanjaro

Kibo Hut is the highest camp on Mount Kilimanjaro, sitting at 4,700 meters in elevation — just over a thousand meters below the Gilman’s Point. You’ll end up getting into Kibo Hut in the early afternoon, resting for a few hours, and then starting the final climb to the summit around midnight. You’ll also rest here for a few hours after descending back from the summit.

There is no running water and this camp, and you’ll find yourself freezing at night (at least in October when I went, that was the case). There are about 10 beds per room.
