Day 3: Kikelewa Caves

“A longer day’s trekking today, gaining close to 1000m / 3000 feet. A steady walk in the morning leads to the so-called “Second Cave,” where we take lunch in sight of the peak of Kibo and the ice fields on the crater rim. After lunch, we turn off towards the jagged summit of Mawenzi and follow a trail across open moorland to a sheltered valley near Kikelewa Caves. Unusual giant tree-groundsels are the dominant plant species on this part of the route. Altitude at camp – 3550m /11,647ft. 6 to 7 hours walking.”
