10 DAYS KILIMANJARO TREKKING LEMOSHO ROUTE

The Lemosho Route is widely considered to be the best route on Mount Kilimanjaro. Not too long ago, there were only two main routes used to climb Kilimanjaro – the Marangu (Coca Cola) route and the Machame (Whiskey) route. But as Tanzania’s tourism industry flourished, the Kilimanjaro park authority created more trails to African’s highest peak.

7 DAYS KILIMANJARO TREKKING MACHAME ROUTE

The seven day Machame variation is the ideal schedule for this route. On the 7 day Machame route, the trek from Barranco to Barafu is broken up into two days, allowing for a short day just prior to the summit attempt. This is important because summit day begins very early, around midnight, so climbers are sleep deprived going into the toughest day on the mountain. By having a short day beforehand, climbers can be better rested.

6 DAYS KILIMANJARO TREKKING MACHAME ROUTE

Kilimanjaro climbing 6 days Machame Route, the so known as “Whiskey” route which means challenging route .Climb Kilimanjaro 6 day, Machame the best route. It is the second most popular and one of the most scenic routes on the mountain. All climbers sleep in tents (tents are included) and meals are served in a dinner tent or on a blanket outside. It is done over 6 days, so acclimatization is easier, and the success rate is fairly high. It is for physically fit people with some hiking experience.

7-Day The Roof of Africa Marangu Route

The Marangu Route is perhaps the easiest and most comfortable route to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro. The route is well developed and the climb is constant and moderate. Only the approach to the summit is the exception; this being slightly more demanding. The accommodation on this tour is in simple mountain huts, which is an advantage as the nights can be very cold.

 

8 DAYS KILIMANJARO TREKKING RONGAI ROUTE

Starts in Arusha, when you arrive on day 1 at your lodge. The climb begins at the remote, northern side of Kilimanjaro, near the Kenyan border. We hike through a true wilderness area towards the jagged Mawenzi Peak, then cross a barren desert saddle, before climbing up Kibo’s eastern crater wall.The Rongai route is a more gradual ascent and is therefore preferred by those with little or no backpacking experience. However, it is equally enjoyable for even the most hardened trekkers.
