I am attempting a summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro (Africa) later in the year. I have most of my gear, however the one thing I am unsure of is the best way to hydrate and store/carry my water. I am also unsure of purification methods.
I know I am supposed to drink 3 - 5L a day when hiking and my initial thought was to take a 3L camelback and two 1L bottles. Is this too much?
I am also worried about the water freezing at the higher altitudes, what measures can I take to prevent this?. What are experiences other have had Kilimanjaro or not?
