Mt. Kilimanjaro Trekking Routes
There are several routes to choose from, taking anything from 5 to 10 days depending on your abilities, budget and time. These are: Machame (6 or 7 days), Marangu (5 or 6 days), Rongai (6 or 7 days), Umbwe (6 days), Lemosho (7 to 8 days) and Northern Circuit (9 to 10 days)
We usually recommend both the 7 Day Machame and 8 Day Lemosho routes as good options for climbers of all abilities. Not only are these routes known for being incredibly scenic, they also both have very high success rates as they allow your body to adjust to the altitude over several days.
