Nine Macedonians climb Kilimanjaro

Team of mountaineers comprised of nine-members from Macedonia, five from Albania, one from Serbia and Austria succeeded to climb Uhuru, the tallest peak (5,895 meters) on Kilimanjaro which is the highest mountain in Africa, located in Northeast Tanzania.

Zivko Temelkoski led the expedition and the three highest points of the volcano crater were climbed by Ivan Trpkov and Viktor Kalauzi from mountaineering sports club “Dimitar Ilievski Murato” from Bitola, Ilija Belevski, Igor Stojakovic, Dimitar Malinovski, Aleksandar Nikolovski from mountaineering sports club “Makeptrol” in Skopje, Katica Borisovska from mountaineering sports club “Ruen” in Kriva Palanka and Iskra Lazarova from mountaineering sports club “Bistra” in Skopje.

Climbing to Uhuru lasted five days, four in ascending and the last day in descending.

The team has returned to Macedonia several days ago. The expedition was organised in the frameworks of the Balkan Mountaineering Union (BMU).
