MACHAME ROUTE

Enjoy the relaxed pace and stunning views!

DESCRIPTION:

Approaching legendary Kilimanjaro from the south-west, the popular Machame Route taken over six or seven days (we recommend seven) will give you good acclimatization time and every chance of reaching the summit.

 

Lush rainforests and Alpine moorland characterize the landscape on this trek, which is challenging, make no mistake, despite the extra day. Accommodation on the mountain  will be in tented camps – a true mountain adventure.

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Reaching the summit! Experiencing that incomparable "top of the world" feeling

  • A more relaxed pace than the popular Marangu route, but still challenging!

  • Stunning views as you ascend

  • Discover Shira Plateau and Barranco

  • Dedicated guides, porters and cooks – a great team to help you along your way!

HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO CLIMB THE MACHAME ROUTE?

The Machame route is considered relatively tough. Depending on your level of fitness, you will be trekking for 6-7 hours nearly every day and at increasing altitude.

 

For the summit ascent, you will need to be prepared for a whopping 12-15 hours on your feet! Climbing up the crater rim to Uhuru Peak for 6-8 hours, and descending back down for 6-7 hours.

Climbers are sometimes nervous about how they will handle the Great Barranco Wall, but this is just a short scramble and you will be helped by your guide every step of the way. 

That being said, there are no parts on the route that require any technical climbing skills.

Thousands of climbers safely travel this route each year, let alone the Kilimanjaro porters carrying heavy loads.

The total Machame route distance is approximately 62 kilometers from gate to gate.
