Although it’s possible to climb Mount Kilimanjaro all year round, timing is a good factor in your chances of a successful summit. There are two climbing periods, both of which fall in the dry season months of June to October and January to February. At other times of the year, seasonal rains can make the routes slippery and somehow challenging to navigate. January and February are generally warmer than the winter months of June to October. Whatever time of year you decide to climb, make sure to bring cold weather gear, because the top of the mountain is usually crowned with ice.
