7 DAY RONGAI ROUTE OVERVIEW
The Rongai route offers the best chance to experience the wildlife surrounding Mt. Kilimanjaro and it is one of the quietest routes on the mountain. Over a period of 7 days, Rongai offers ample time to acclimatise. It starts on the North Eastern side of Kilimanjaro close to the border with Kenya. The route passes close to Mawenzi before joining the Marangu Route at Kibo Hut and ascending to Gilman’s point before heading for Uhuru Peak. Descent is via the Marangu Route with a night spent at Horombo Hut before heading to Marangu Gate.
