    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.

    LEMOSHO ROUTE OVERVIEW

    The Lemosho route can run as a 7 or 8 day trek and begins to the west of Kilimanjaro in the rainforest and moorland before ascending to the Shira Plateau. While offering some of the most beautiful and famous features on Kilimanjaro including the Lava Tower and the Barranco Wall, the ascent and descent over its duration present some of the best acclimatisation opportunities and summit success. The Lemosho route joins with the Machame route and ascends Kilimanjaro via Barfu Camp and Stella Point. Descent is via Mweka Route with a camp at either Millennium or Mweka camp during the descent.

  • 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.

Then make your summit bid via Gilman’s point. Your descent is returning more or less by the exact same trail. This route has hut accommodation only and can be busy as the ascent and descent are along the same route.
