Kilimanjaro Routes

Rongai route 6 Days

This 6 Days Kilimanjaro Rongai route .The Rongai Trailhead is Kilimanjaro’s only route beginning from the north side and crossing the mountain. Rongai Route 6 Day begins and end at Kilimanjaro Mountain Resort in Marangu.
Arrive anytime at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), there will be a private transfer waiting at the airport to pick up you to Kilimanjaro Mountain Resort in Marangu.
All airport transfers are the part of the package, no extra fee is required.

It is used by few trekkers. It joins with the Marangu Route on the final ascent to the summit on the fourth day, but otherwise few others are seen along the way. This route affords the opportunity to witness up-close the Mawenzi volcano, the second highest peak of Kilimanjaro, and the magnificent saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo Peak.
Due to the rugged terrain and the very limited acclimatization time, fitness plays a huge role in the enjoyment and success of this trek. Each day you see many changes of vegetation and scenery, due to the rising terrain and decrease in precipitation. The accommodation is in mountain tents and dining is in our mess tents. Toilet tents with convenient and sanitary portable flush toilets are set up at all camps.

8 Days Lemosho route – The Lemosho route is probability the most scenic route up the summit of Kilimanjaro starting from the western part of the mountain. On the way up just the first day you may see wild animals including monkey, duiker and occasion buffaloes.

DAY 01:
A three-hour drive from Moshi brings us to the Londorossi Park Gate located on the western side of Kilimanjaro. At the gate after registration we pick up a game ranger who will accompany us, as we might encounter elephants and buffaloes during our trek. Drive to the trail-head at Lemosho Glades and start the trek through the rain forest. In places the vegetation is so untouched that it grows right across the narrow track. The flora and fauna are richer here than on the other more popular routes through the rain forest. Our trek today will be along a little used track known as Chamber’s Route. In about 3-4 hours we will reach our camp in the rain forest at Mti Mkubwa (Big Tree) at 2795m.

Overnight Shira 1 Camp at 3505m.

DAY 3: shira 1 – Shira 2 camp

DAY 4: Shira 2 – Baranco Camp
It’s about a 7 hour superb hike today. We pass the Lava Tower, around the southern flank of Kibo, and slowly descend to Barranco, your most spectacular campsite, at the foot of Kibo Peak, looming high above. Our camp is only 142m higher than where we were last night, but our walk will have taken us to just over 4300m today. This is one of your most valuable days for acclimatization. Overnight at Barranco 3865m.

DAY 5: Baranco Camp – Karanga Camp

From the Barranco Hut we ascend up the Barranco wall and walk across screed and ridges to Karanga Valley (4100m) with breathtaking views of the West Breach and the southern glacier. Lunch is often taken here, depending on progress. The afternoon can be spent on an acclimatization hike, before spending the night at Karanga Valley.

DAY 6: Karanga Camp – Barafu
After a relaxing start, about 2 hours from Karanga we will come out on the Barafu path (part of the Mweka Trail). It is a further 1-2 hours to Barafu. The last stage to Barafu camp is quite steep, and as always we advise taking it as easy as possible. This is the day that leads to the final ascent and so being as relaxed as possible, both mentally and physically, is the best advice. In the evening you will be briefed for the final ascent.

DAY 7: Uhuru Peak- Barafu – mweka Camp
You will be woken in the middle of the night and start the final ascent. We plan to reach Stella Point by sunrise. (About 6 or more hours) At dawn, from the Crater rim, rugged Mawenzi is a thrilling sight, with the Kibo saddle still in darkness beneath you, and the crater’s ice-walls looming ahead. If you feel strong enough, you continue to Uhuru Peak (1-2 hours) This is the highest point in Africa, and the world’s highest solitary peak (5895m). This is the toughest day that most trekkers have ever experienced. You will have ascended 1100m and descended 2,200m in a period of 12-15 hours. We continue down to Mweka Hut (3-4 hours from the top).

DAY 8: Mweka Camp – Mweka Gate – Moshi

The hike takes about 4-6 hours. The path is interesting, starting off through rain forest vegetation, and then opening up to giant heather.

Meal plan: Lunch, dinner, breakfast

Day 3: Mandara Hut – Horombo Hut (12,200ft)

The route passes directly up onto the Saddle, a wide, flat area with the peaks of Kibo and Mawenzi looming overhead. Views from here can be fantastic. The last part of the trail passes across the arid plateau before ascending to Kibo Hut. Kibo Hut is a stone hut with rooms that sleep 10-15 people in bunk beds.

The summit climb is an event you will not forget, with the night sky full of stars and only your breathing to help focus your mind. Most climbers arrive at Gillman’s Point, elevation 18,635 feet, in time to enjoy sunrise around 6:30 a.m. The views from the top looking down on the plains of Africa make it all worthwhile. Some climbers decide that they have reached their goal and head down from here. For the strong, the true summit is Uhuru Peak (19,340 feet)-an additional 3 hours away round-trip. The descent from Gillman’s Point is fairly rapid, taking about 2 hours. Most climbers take a short rest at Kibo Hut before descending to Horombo Hut for the night, arriving in the late afternoon.
