distance6 km

At 9 am we start from our hotel, after 4 hours and a short breakfast we are at Londorossi Gate, where we spend additional 1-2 hours, this is a time for measuring weights for our porters and we consume our lunch boxes.

It is raining, but the adventure begins.

Then we go to Lemosho Gate, where we spend an additional half-hour for a recheck of baggage. Now we can start hiking, we starting with Rain Forest, it is wet and muddy. Trekking is not hard, we are very fast at a camp, out the first camp - Mti Mkubwa Camp.

Our crew sets up a camp and we register in the camp guest book.

There are 3 small yellow tents. 2 for us, 1 for guide, guide assistant and one of the porter (after a couple of days we start calling him Tomorrow-Morning).

There is one tent where is a kitchen and where the rest of our crew is sleeping (about 12 men in one tent!). There is also a fourth tent where we eat our meals.

We also saw a big blue monkey, your guide said that one of them is crazy and like to steal some items from porters.

After dinner, we went to sleep.
