Capula Takes On Kilimanjaro

A team of people from Capula are heading to Tanzania to attempt to climb one of the tallest mountains in the world in a bid to raise money for charity while undertaking the experience of a lifetime.

They’re swapping engineering for exploring next January as they seek to reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, whose highest point – Uhuru Peak – sits at an altitude of 5,895m (19,341ft above sea level. Waiting for them is a daunting week-long climb, through drastically contrasting conditions from forestry and savannahs to volcanic rocky outcrops and glaciers.

The team, comprising 12 Capula individuals, is aiming to raise at least £10,000 for the charity through the challenge. We’ll bring you news of their progress nearer the time. You can sponsor them online
