Mount Mulanjie is possibly the highlight of any trip to Malawi. It is a very DIFFICULT climb and not for the feint hearted so it would be reccomend getting fit before attempting the Mountain. To reach the peak of the mountain "Sapitwa" is very dangerous and involves walking accross thin, high, expanses of rock but reaching the top before sunrise is amazing. The huts that are available to stay in on the way up the mountain are very basic but very appriciated as it is unlikely that anyone climbing would have the energy to pitch tents for the night. They all have fires with which you can cooked upon and the huts provide great points at which to stop and reach. The scenary climbing up the mountain is amazing, the water running down means there is lots of greenary and wildlife about and the rock pools at the bottom at the 'luxary' hut are a great reward after trekking for 5 days. The water is freezing but its well worth it.
Finally, this is an umissable opportunity when in Malawi and would urge anyone to accomplish the great task of climbing Mount Mulanjie.
