MACHAME ROUTE OVERVIEW
Due to the ascent and descent over its duration – following the golden rule of ‘climb high and sleep low’ – the Machame Route offers some of the best acclimatization and the greatest summit success. The Machame Route is definitely recommended for people experiencing high altitude mountaineering for the first time. It takes you in some of the best geological features on the mountain. Descent is via Mweka Route. A minimum of 6 days is needed, but for more comfort and to increase your chance of success, 7 days are recommended.
