6 DAYS MACHAME ROUTE


Trip Summary: 6 days on the Mountain

Arrival Day (Day 1) is … every Wednesday and Friday, except April and May


THIS IS THE SECOND MOST POPULAR ROUTE and is considered the most beautiful route up Kilimanjaro. With a gradual ascent through the forest you emerge to see wide views of the moorland on Shira Plateau, Kibo and Western Breach. The variety of vegetation found along the route make it the most scenic route. For a slightly more technical climb on Kilimanjaro, one can conquer Uhuru peak from Arrow Glacier camp, but a less challenging route can be taken from Barranco hut.
