What Are the Importance of Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with full moon

The full moon occurs when the earth is located directly between the sun and the moon, causing the moon to be completely illuminated (it looks completely round and bright). A Kilimanjaro full moon happens about every 29 days and there are 13 full Moons dates every year. 

Kilimanjaro Full Moon Climbing is very important and a unique experience to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and summit under the shining full moonlight. Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to catch up with the full moon dates on the summit could further enhance the whole experience. Mount Kilimanjaro climbs usually take place during the daytime, and it is only the summit attempt struggle, that starts before midnight in order to reach the summit at sunrise.

A summit attempt done during a full moon could make the evening climb easier, since you might not need to use your headlamps in the bright light of the full moon, Also Visibility is much greater on the Mountain.
