Thursday, 15 August 2013 Tanzania: Seven-Year-Old Conquers Mt Kilimanjaro Tanzania: Seven-Year-Old Conquers Mt Kilimanjarotrip

Here's a break from accompanying Ross Methven on his Edinburgh to Cape Town mega cycling fundraising trip while I briefly focus on Mt. Kilimanjaro. It is the story of a seven-year old who climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in March 2013.

The Kilimanjaro National Parks Authority (KINAPA) normally does not allow children of less than 16 years to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro but, once in a while, I hear these incredible feats of children who manage to reach the summit. Normally KINAPA will ask the accompanying adults to sign a waiver in the event of a calamity.

That fact that Aaryan Balaji was accompanied by his mother probably is a testament of how capable this young man is and says something about the confidence of a mother in his son.

I would not permit a seven-year old to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro.
