It was very unfortunately to loose some of few people during the Mount Kilimanjaro trekking using the Western Breach path to the Roof to of Africa. The cause was the landslide which brought about covering summiteers that had hides themselves inside the caves. For this reason we highly recommend people not use the caves for any purposes will in Kilimanjaro. To day the route (path) is opened and allows again alpiners to explore the most adventurous route on Kilimanjaro.
