Importance of full moon dates

Summiting Kilimanjaro on a cloudless full moon night is without a doubt an unforgettable experience. The glaciers glittering in the moonlight is absolutely stunning. For obvious reasons the moonlight will also make the final night climb on your summit night easier and most of the time it will be unnecessary to even switch on your head lamp. In actual fact, planning your summit attempt to coincide with the full moon dates mentioned below would enhance your whole trek up the mountain, offering some magnificent night views of Kibo from most of the overnight camps.
