How fit do I have to be?
Many articles state that Kilimanjaro is easily accessible. However you should not underestimate this mountain even though there are no technical mountaineering skills required, but general fitness is necessary. However, the biggest problem for climbers is the low air pressure in highly altitude, which seems to be unrelated to fitness, age or gender.

It is a good idea to start some physical training prior to the trek, which might include aerobic training and hiking to familiarize your body with the rigors of the trek. The fitter you are, the easier the climb will be for you. Determination and will power is another important factor.

What if I am slower than the other trekkers?
There is no need to worry – this is a common concern, it is much better for your body if you proceed slowly and the guides will continuously remind you about this (pole pole) slowly slowly. By walking slowly your body will much better acclimatize to the high altitude. There is plenty of time allotted each day for the treks, even for those who like to go very slowly.
