Kilimanjaro Climb Expeditions & Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, offering a comprehensive guide to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with the experts. Crowned by an eternal snowcap, Mount Kilimanjaro is situated inside the Kilimanjaro National Park in Tanzania. Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest freestanding mountain on earth.


Kilimanjaro Climb Expeditions | Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

There are seven Mount Kilimanjaro routes, six routes up Kilimanjaro, and one down.

Several of these trails meet after a few days climbing.

There are only three dedicated routes from the base of Kibo—the main peak—to the Kilimanjaro crater rim. (One of them, the Western Breach route, is a challenging and dangerous route and not used much.)

The routes to climb Kilimanjaro approach the mountain from different sides (map coming) and they vary considerably in length, difficulty, traffic levels and other aspects.

(Here is a detailed discussion of how those Kilimanjaro climbing routes compare regarding difficulty ratings, quality of experience, prices and success rates.)

Below you find an overview of all seven Kilimanjaro routes

The Advantages and Disadvantages of
the Different Kilimanjaro Climb Routes


Marangu route| Machame route| Rongai route| Shira route| Lemosho route| Umbwe route| Mweka route

Mt Kilimanjaro climbing Marangu Route
For many years Marangu used to be the most popular Kilimanjaro route. It has now been delegated to number two by the Machame route.
Duration: 5 days, acclimatization day can be added
Advantages:
Low cost
Accommodation is in huts, no camping equipment needed
Supposedly the easiest route (I beg to differ)
Disadvantages:
Lowest success rate
Very crowded
Camping is not allowed
The only route that uses the same way up and down

Duration: 6 or 7 days
Advantages:
Relatively low cost
A very scenic Kilimanjaro route
Higher success rate than Marangu
Disadvantages:
Higher level of difficulty
Very crowded
Climbing Kilimanjaro on the Machame Route
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mt Kilimanjaro trekking Rongai Route
The Rongai route is the easiest route up Kilimanjaro. It has a reputation as a remote wilderness trail. Rongai is the only route to approach Kilimanjaro from the north.
Duration: 5 or 6 days
Advantages:
The easiest Kilimanjaro route
One of the quieter routes on Kilimanjaro
Approaches the mountain from the driest side, best chances of good weather
Ascent and descent are on opposite sides, you see both sides of Kilimanjaro. (You descend on the Marangu route.)

Duration: 7 - 8 days
Advantages:
Extremely scenic route
Very low number of climbers during the first days
Plenty of time for acclimatization
Disadvantages:
High cost
Higher difficulty level
