We continue our trek easterly around the northern side of Kilimanjaro, making our way slowly up and down countless ravines and valleys, on our way to the 3rd Cave Camp.

Situated on the edge of the grassy vegetation zone directly to the north, the camp is at the bottom of an ancient lava flow. Within the dry 'riverbed' are numerous fossils, and even the suprisingly out-of-place flower.

3rd Cave Camp is reassuringly familiar, as our 2013 adventure to summit Kilimanjaro used this camp, via the Rongai route.

A relatively easy, although suprisingly long day of trekking around the northern face of Kilimanjaro, a stone's throw to the Kenyan border.
