    Description :
    Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro Machame Route (7 Days)
    Machame Route is regarded as the most scenic of the trails up Kilimanjaro, it’s a tougher climbin route compared to thers such as Marangu but climbers will suffer less acclimatization problem and attitude sickness. You ascend gradually through the forest until you emerge onto the Moorland of Shira Plateau, from which there are superb views of the Kibo Peak and the Great Western Breach. For this particular tour, we recommend you to book a flight arriving at Kilimanjaro International Airport-JRO with the same return.

    The Machame Trail’s popularity is justly deserved as many porters and guides also name it as their favorite. Also known as the Whiskey Route to distinguish it from the Marangu path (which is known as the Coca Cola Trail), the Machame Route takes in some of the finest parts of the mountain, including the atmospheric Shira Plateau and the lunar landscape near Barafu Campsite. Statistics show that the Machame Route offers a higher chance of reaching the summit.
