Climber Contribution

Climber Contribution Fee

We ask climbers to consider a minimum contribution of $3 per climber as a KRTO Climber Contribution Fee. This fee directly supports the following initiatives:

  • Fair Wages: Ensuring porters are paid fair wages in accordance with our guidelines.
  • Proper Gear: Providing porters with the necessary gear and clothing to safely and comfortably undertake their work.
  • Education and Training: Offering training programs for porters on safety, first aid, and environmental conservation practices.
  • Advocacy and Awareness: Raising awareness among climbers and tour operators about the importance of ethical climbing practices.

Join us in our mission to support ethical climbing in Tanzania, Peru and Nepal. Together, we can make a difference, one step, one climber, one porter at a time. Interested in joining our team of volunteers? We can use all experience, just a few hours or more. Please contact us We are looking forward to meet you!
