Mount Kilimanjaro attracts a lot of visitors annually who seeks the adventure of conquering the highest peak in Africa. amount Kilimanjaro has different routes at 19340 feet (5895meters) above sea level. The most popular routes being Marangu na Machame Route, with Rongai and Shira Plateau are also widely used by several Kilimanjaro outfitters.
Marangu approaches Kilimanjaro from southeast. Its the oldest and most established route. Many favor the Marangu route because it is considered to be the easiest route on the mountain, given its gradual slope and direct path.
Machame is quickly becoming the second most popular route. More scenic, and steeper in parts than Marangu, this route is best done 7 days, but it can also be done in 6 days by the fit adventure.
Steep, direct , and considered the most difficult route up kilimanjaro, Umbwe is only recommended for advanced climbers. Approached from the south, the fast ascension forced by this route can hinder proper acclimatization.
Rongai route is the only route the you can climb from the north of Mt Kilimanjaro near to Kenya border. With its starting point at a higher attitude, a trek on Rongai is short and with less traffic than Marangu.
An improvement upon the shira route, Lemosho is the longest route on mount Kilimanjaro, and provide beautifully panoramic views from various side of the mountain.
