Drinking water is available from streams and springs, but must be treated before one can drink. It is recommended one climber must drink at least 3-4 liters per day.

Bottled mineral drinking water is available in Tanzania, and can be purchased and carried up during the climb.  The purchase and hauling up to Kilimanjaro during the climb needs extra cash to pay extra porters and purchasing water itself.

 

Climbers using Rongai/  Loitoktok the less traveled route summit from Kibo hut and descend through Marangu “Coca cola” route.  While in Kibo and Horombo Huts, climbers from Rongai/ Loitoktok Route  sleep in tents but can use other services such as toilets.

 

The extra day at Cave III is also very important for climbers to acclimatize well and  this  helps to increase chances to reach the summit.
