Proper hydration is crucial to succeeding on Kilimanjaro as it helps climbers better adjust to the elevation. Your crew will provide unlimited purified water on the trip, and you should plan to drink 4-5 liters each day to help with the altitude. Bring along powdered drink mixes with electrolytes, or bouillon cubes to change up the flavor so you can keep drinking!

Our revolutionary water purification system was first pioneered on MTV’s Summit on the Summit charity climb featuring celebrities trekking to raise awareness for the global clean water crisis. Another organization climbing for clean water, WaterCan, returns for their second trek with us this coming March!
