This happiness will last for almost 45 minutes due to the weather not being supportive of staying for a long time.

Also, you will get to take commemorative photos while you are at the peak of 5895 meters. In this area, the internet does not reach where it would make it easier to be live-streamed on social media. So, instead, you will save and later show your fans while you are at the top of Kilimanjaro.
