Sunrise at the top of Kilimanjaro

The Kilimanjaro trek is one of my favorite treks, it captures all you would want from a trek: nature, beauty, sunrises, cold nights. To reach the top, we left last base camp at midnight and reached the top at 6AM, just in time to see the most inspiring sunrise ever, overlooking the Tanzanian plains covered with morning clouds. It was well deserved.
Location: Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
