Walk route: Horombo Huts (3700m) - Mandara Huts (2700m) - Marangu Gate (1860m)
Time: 5 hours 0 minutes
With: KE Adventure / Tanzania Rift Valley Tours
Our last day on the mountain, a long descent down to the park gate, and a beer.
All the way up it had been 'pole pole' meaning slowly slowly so that we acclimatised. Today was not 'pole pole' as we raced down the mountain.
