Note: why should you think about corporations paying porters fairly? Porters are low-income individuals who are hired on a hike basis. Porters carry 20kg up the mountain, along with about 5–8kg of personal gear; at higher altitudes, the last camp porter will descend to the previous camp to obtain water; for all of this work, the minimum required wage by law is $10 per day; however, companies will exploit porters primarily to compete on price. Porters are paid fairly with us.

It’s another big day of trekking, as you will make your path to Kibo hut and rest for the night ahead of your attempt to summit the roof of Africa.

Make sure you drink a lot of water during dinner, as you will be up bright and early tomorrow to start your quest to the summit.
