I'm currently planning a group trip for a climb up Kili via the Lemosho route. However, I'm getting different opinions as to whether you should get a personal oxygen system or not. Would anybody be able to share their experiences please?
The argument against is that it apparently could mask more serious underlying altitude sickness. I guess the argument is that you better off finding out much lower down the mountain rather than on the penultimate day when you've got a long way down
The argument for is that it improves your chances of success. I'm always a bit suspicious of operators trying to push rental of their equipment though.
I'd greatly appreciate it if I could have some views. I'm organising for a group and I don't want to be accused of slipping up on this important health and safety issue.
