PinoyMountaineer reaches Mt. Kilimanjaro summit
MANILA – The PinoyMountaineer Kilimanjaro Expedition 2011 has ended with a successful and safe climb, with our group of six Filipinos ascending Mt. Kilimanjaro via the Rongai route from December 20-25, 2011. Four members of the team reached the summit, Uhuru Peak, at 1115H Tanzanian time (1615H Manila time) on December 24, 2011.
Uhuru Peak, the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, at 5895 MASL the highest mountain in Africa, is one of the fabled Seven Summits of the world. I will be blogging about the climb from Hiking matters #220-227 in the coming days, and will be posting more pictures in the PM Facebook site. I thank Columbia Sportswear, Black Diamond, and R.O.X. Philippines for the gear and clothing that I used in the expedition, which worked very well and I will also be doing a lot of gear reviews about them!

sana may chance magkitakita yung mga pinoy na umaakyat international. meron din daw umakyat sa argentina nung December, tapos meron na rin nakapag Fuji at Base camp ng everest bukod sa mga nacover ng main stream media.
can't wait for your more detailed narrative of the successful expedition. congrats again, doc PGL and to the rest of the team. and praise God for the safety everyone.
