Kilimanjaro, known as the roof of Africa, is a mountain without major technical difficulties, but its almost 6,000 meters high should not be underestimated. The ascension trekking can be done from its base in 5 days, but we recommend 6 or 7 days to achieve good acclimatization and not have problems with altitude sickness.
The ascension can be done from 7 different routes, although there are 4 main ones, each one has its particularities; Let us advise you and we will find the route that best suits your objectives and expectations. Some of them offer lodges where you can spend the night every night and others only tents. Our local team will help you live the best experience and reach the top of the roof of Africa. Climb Kilimanjaro, see all the possibilities.
In a very summary way, these are the differences between the routes:
-Ideal for beginners – Marangu and Machame Routes
-The best landscapes – Lemosho and Machame Routes
-Affordable price and for beginners – Marangu Route
-Medium difficulty – Machame Routes and Lemosho Routes
-Expert level – Umbwe Route
