I've successfully climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro via the Lemosho route in 2012. We are headed back again, this time with our son. We want to do it this time a bit differently. We are planning an 8 day Machame route which includes staying in the crater overnight. We are going to climb to the summit prior to sleeping in the crater overnight. I like adventure and I had no problem at all my last trip. Just wondering from experienced people who have already stayed in the crater their advice, suggestions and expertise. Thanks for you time!
