Summiting Kilimanjaro on a cloudless full moon night is without a doubt an unforgettable experience. The once in a lifetime view of the glaciers glittering in the moonlight is absolutely stunning. Planning your climb to coincide with a full moon is the ultimate enhancement to an already epic journey.

While it is not necessary to summit on the exact full moon date to take advantage of the beautiful moonlight along your climb, a 7-day trek should begin 5 days prior to the full moon date.
