Climbing the Kilimanjaro in the High Tourist Season
The best thing about visiting Kilimanjaro during the high season is that the mountain is generally dry.

But generally the rain in this season is extremely minimal. So because it is dry, you will stay dry and comfortable and the trails will be dry and much easier to climb. Therefore, with the discomfort of being wet and trembling cold eliminated, you will have a better opportunity to acclimatize well. Furthermore, during the dry season, the skies are clear and the views are good.
Looking at the negative side of visit the Kilimanjaro during this time, there are so many climbers on the mountain at this time, so you will not feel like you are up on a remote very big mountain. But so people, this works to their advantage as they get a chance to socialize with other tourist groups especially while at the overnight camps.
Nonetheless, the large crowds experienced during the dry season are not a setback for main especially when the think about the good weather they will experience up the mountain during this time of the year.
Climbing the Kilimanjaro in the Low Tourist Season
