6 Machame Route

6 days Machame Route

This is probably the most beautiful route up the mountain. The Machame Route offers camping only where all the equipment and supplies are carried by the porters and the delicious meals are prepared by the cook during the trek. This makes Machame better suited to the slightly more adventurous hiker. There is an added benefit to this, as you are afforded the most valuable commodity on the mountain – acclimatization.

Details and activity: Final details check about the trip, All of the personal equipments for trekking, receive Tanzanian sim card for local communication and international then diner.

6 days Machame  route.

Day 1 Machame Gate (1800m) – Machame Camp (3000m). Transfer to the starting Gate at Machame for 50 min. After completing the necessary registration formalities at Machame National Park gate, you will get time to know you trekking supporting team such as guides, cook, and porters. We begin to trek through a beautiful and lush forest. We have a picnic lunch en route. We camp at Machame Camp. [5-6 hours walking]

Day 2 Machame Camp (3000m) – Shira Camp (3840m).Today we leave the forest behind and enter the moorland zone of giant heather. The trail climbs steadily through rocky hills with wide views of the Shira Plateau. From our camp near Shira Hut, we take in the unforgettable views of Mt. Meru as she floats among the clouds. [4-5 hours walking]

Day 3 Shira Campsite (3840m) – Lava Tower (4600m) – Barranco Camp (3950m).A morning of sustained ascent and panoramic views brings us to have lunch near Lava Tower. The trail then descends to the bottom of the Barranco Valley, where we stay in the spectacular Barranco Camp sheltered by towering cliffs and with extensive views of the plains far below. [7-9 hours walking]

Day 4 Barranco Camp (3950m) – Barafu Camp (4600m). A steep climb up the Barranco Wall leads us to an undulating trail on the southeastern flank of Kibo, with superb vistas of the Southern Ice fields. The terrain changes to scree, with pockets of lush vegetation in sheltered hollows. We trek past Karanga Camp and continue along a path on compacted scree that gains altitude unrelentingly to reach Barafu Hut. After dinner, we sleep early to prepare for the early morning final ascent. [7-11 hours walking]

Day 5 Barafu Camp – (4600m) – Uhuru Peak (5895m) – Mweka Camp (3 100m). We’ll start our ascent by torchlight about 1 am. so that we can be up on the crater rim by sunrise. The steep climb over loose volcanic scree has some well-graded zigzags and a slow but steady pace will take us to Stella Point, in about five or six hours. We will rest there for a short time to enjoy the sunrise over Mawenzi. Those who are still feeling strong can make the two-hour round trip from here along the crater rim to Uhuru Peak, passing close to the spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs that still occupy most of the summit area. The descent to Barafu is surprisingly fast, and after some refreshments, we continue to descend to reach our final campsite, Millennium Camp. [11-15 hours walking]

Day 6 Mweka Camp (3100m) – Mweka Gate (1500m).A sustained descent on a well-constructed path takes us through a lovely tropical forest alive with birdsong and boasting lush underground with considerable botanical interest. Our route winds down to the Kilimanjaro National Park gate at Mweka; and on through coffee and banana farms to Mweka village, from where we are transferred to Moshi for 25 min to the hotel or hostel. [4-6 hours walking]

Six days Lemosho route

Six days Lemosho route is probably the most beautiful, unspoilt, little used route up Kilimanjaro and a good way to the Shira Plateau. Accommodation on this route

offers strictly tents only. This makes Lemosho Route better suited to the slightly more adventurous hiker and more difficulty especially to cover the distance and elevation in the allotted time, on the day 2, the journey from Forest Camp to Shira 2, is rather long and has an elevation gain of 3,000 feet. It would not be unusual for climbers to have symptoms of altitude sickness while only on the second day of the climb due to the quick pace.

Secondly, day four combined with day five makes for a very tough schedule. Day four is a full day of trekking from Barranco to Barafu. Then after dinner and a partial night’s sleep, the very long and strenuous summit day begins around midnight. The 6 day Lemosho route requires 19-24 hours of demanding walking, at extremely high elevation, with only 4-6 hours of sleep.

Day 1

  • Londorossi Gate to Forest Camp
  • Elevation (ft): 7,800ft to 9,500ft
  • Distance: 6 km
  • Hiking Time:3-4 hours

As we ascend through the lush rolling hills and cross several streams, we reach the Shira Ridge before dropping gently down to Shira 1 camp. The view of Kibo from across the plateau is amazing. From here, it is a gentle walk east toward Kibo’s glaciers peak, across the plateau to Shira 2 camp on moorland meadows by a stream.

We now continue down to the Barranco Hut at an altitude of 13,000ft. Here we rest, enjoy dinner, and overnight.
