The most scenic route up Mount Kilimanjaro, the Machame route is normally done in a minimum of 6 days / 5nights on the mountain. It is a more demanding but much quieter route whose highlights are the Shira Plateau, Barranco wall and the Karanga Valley reaching the summit via Stella Point. Because this route is more taxing it is recommended that trekkers should be physically fit and with the additional day on trek to assist with acclimatisation there is a good chance of reaching the summit.
Overnights are spent camping in tents which are carried and pitched by the accompanying porters.
The most popular route up the mountain, the Marangu or coca cola route is followed by most of the climbers. It has a well defined path where obstacles have been modified to make them ‘climber friendly’. Despite the human traffic this is a very scenic route with good views of Mawenzi and excellent prospects for viewing wildlife. Accommodation on this route is in purpose built mountain huts providing adequate shelter and even bottled water, beer and soft drinks.
