    Ditto. Preparing for 21 day trek in Tibetan Himalayas. Need 2 – 3 weeks at +10,000 feet. Considering somewhere in the Sierras or Colorado. Thanks.

    Ray. Check out G Adventures. They offer several routes up Kilimanjaro. I just used them for 45 days from Lima to Rio de Janeiro including being in the western Andes for 3 days up to 5,000 meters or 16,500 feet.
