Congratulations to Ali Riley, of our Boston office, for reaching the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro!
As a member of our marketing department, Ali reviews countless photos of Tanzania and Mt. Kilimanjaro, so she was thrilled to finally be on the other side of the photograph and experience the mountain for herself. She joined our 6-day Umbwe Route trek, which is one of the more demanding ascents on the mountain.
Ali enjoyed the challenge of the climb and shared with us that the push to the summit required not only physical strength but also a healthy dose of mental fortitude. She said, “Altitude can humble you in an instant – you really have to dig deep and want it! My guides and fellow trekkers not only made the trip fun but also offered an incredible amount of support. It’s an experience I’ll never forget.”
