New Evaluation Project on Mt. Kilimanjaro – August 2011
There are now Standard Fog Collectors installed on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. This was a joint effort with our partners in ped-world in Germany.
There is a tremendous need for fresh water for guides, rescue personnel and visitors on the upper part of the mountain. Up to now the water has to be carried 8 km to these high elevation huts. We are helping to determine whether the frequent fog found there can be a viable source of fresh water.
The altitude at Barafu is 4600 m and at Kibo-Hut 4750 m. Both are on Kibo-Saddle, the last camp before you reach the peak (5895m).
