Mount Kilimanjaro climbing routes:

Below are the number of days that trekkers usually take to successfully ascend and descend. An extra day of acclimatization is always recommended.

  • RONGAI ROUTE: (6 DAYS TREK )
  • The Rongai Route is one of the easier routes and has very few people on it.
  • MARANGU ROUTE :( 5 DAYS TREK)
  • This is the “Coca Cola” Route.It is the shortest and easiest trek in the mountain and the only route where people sleep in huts.

  • LEMOSHO ROUTE :( 8 DAYS TREK)
  • Lemosho is the longest of the outfield routes, and sometimes regarded as the second timers Kilimanjaro route, although it is also for anyone with an appetite for a quieter trail and a more remote atmosphere.

 

  • MACHAME ROUTE (6 DAYS TREK )
  • The “Whiskey Route” is longer but more scenic

 

 

  • UMBWE ROUTE (7 DAYS TREK )
  • This is a short but more difficult route
