Climb Kilimanjaro—For Free!


Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest peak in Africa, is widely considered the easiest climb of the seven summits—which isn't to say that the climb is a cake walk. But now you have a chance of at least getting to the base of the famed mountain—for free—thanks to a new sweepstakes brought to you from Polarmax and Backpacker Magazine.

The winner (and one guest) will receive round-trip airfare, ground transportation, four nights at a Tanzania hotel (meals included), and a six-day guided round-trip trek to the summit with author Macon Dunnagan. You also get a cache of technical base layers from Polarmax, featuring their new TransDRY wicking cotton fabric, a revolutionary move on the gear front that aims to bring all the tech-savvy features buttery soft cotton apparel.  (Editor's Note: We've tried the stuff—and this kind of cotton doesn't kill; it wicks and dries like the best of the synthetic varieties out there.)

Enter now through October 11, 2010, by visiting Polarmax.

That is a great prize for the sweepstakes. Terri, you don't have to be athletic to climb kilimanjaro. It takes hike endurance and the ability to camp in some cold weather. :)

Thanks for the heads-up on the sweepstakes, I just entered! Kili is something I've always wanted to do. I'll also have to check out this moisture-wicking cotton.

I'm not that athletic so don't plan on doing that much mountain climbing in my life, but I do have Kilimanjaro on my bucket list. Thanks for the notice about the sweepstakes, I'm off to enter!
