Climbing Kilimanjaro is one of the most popular and adventurous activities for all the nomads. So What Is Minimum Age To Climb Mount Kilimanjaro? The Kilimanjaro National Park authority has declared all the travelers above ten years can go for a successful Kilimanjaro Climb.

Besides the age limits, you should keep an eye on the physical fitness of your Kilimanjaro Group. Because climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, above 6000 meters is obviously a challenging task for all.

Along with this, there are some other vaccinations that you must do before your Kilimanjaro trip. They are Hepatitis, Tetanus, Cholera, Diphtheria, Malaria, Measles, rabies, etc.
  • If you are falling under the age group of 40-50, then we suggest a full medical checkup before a week. Because these age groups found at high risk.
