Kilimanjaro tipped as top challenge
Bookmark and Share
Climbing Kilimanjaro has been highlighted as one of the best challenges that any person can do without specialist equipment or training.

In a feature for the Daily Mail, Christopher Hudson described taking on the rigours of the challenge, with the cold, altitude sickness and exhaustion being major challenges to overcome.

He noted that for those hoping to succeed in their endeavours, good training is required to get fit beforehand.

Those keen to do this before taking a trek up the Tanzanian peak may wish to visit their nearest Go Outdoors store and get some running shoes to train.

Also, walking boots will be needed to practice on hills as well as for the mountain itself, along with items such as sleeping bags, hydration packs and insect protection when off the mountain.

The route Christopher Hudson took was the Rongai route, which differs from the rest in climbing the mountain from the north by the border with Kenya.

Last year's Comic Relief celebrity ascent took the Lemosho route from the south-west.
