    The internet connection is jumping, so if you are in need of urgent and stable internet connection (the max speed is 5 mb/sec – and we have the faster internet in Moshi) in our office (20 min drive from the hotel) will be always available.

    Our manager will visit you in the evening, bringing a printed, signed and sealed agreement. He will give you a brief trekking orientation and check your equipment.

    Important info:

    Hotel check-in starts at 2 PM.

    Day 2: From Londorossi Gates to Shira 2 Camp

    Our guides and climbing crew will come to the hotel. A small briefing will be followed by the relatively long transfer (approx. 3-4 hours) to the Western entrance to the Kilimanjaro National Park - Londorossi Park Gate. After the park permits are arranged and the crew is registered with the emergency service, the group will ride in the vehicles to 3500 point. Once reached, the first spectacular panoramic views on Shira Plateau will open for you.
    Walking from the “landing point” to your first checkpoint - Shira 2 Camp (3810) is not physically demanding. The altitude increases almost insensibly, which is especially conducive to effective acclimatization process. By the time of your arrival, the crew will have arranged the camp and prepared a dinner for you.
    It will be your first day on such elevation. We highly recommend you to follow these simple instructions:

    • Reduce caffeine consumption
    • Drink 4 liters (or more) of water (you should better drink in small portions, but frequently)
    • Once the symptoms of the high altitude sickness are found, the intake of Diamox is advisable. Moreover, the pill can be taken as a preventive measure at the beginning of the trekking. Please, consult your physician on the possible individual allergic reactions.

    Acclimatization is more difficult at night because of respiratory activity decrease multiplied by the high altitude. Once you discover the symptoms of high altitude sickness, ask the guides for help.

    Elevations: The Glades of Lemosho (3500 m) - Shira 2 Camp (3810 m)
    Trekking distance: 11 km
    Duration of trekking: 4-7 hours

    Day 3: From Shira 2 Camp to Barranco Camp

    After the breakfast, the group leaves Shira 2 Camp and heads for another key point of our route - Lava Tower (4630 m).Many ups and lows lie ahead. Experiencing some discomfort is common among the amateur climbers at this stage of the ascent.

    In order to make acclimatization process smoother it is advisable to spend 1-2 hours there. Our cooks will offer a warm lunch to you to make your stamina stronger.

    Your Lava Tower adventures are followed by the descent to Barranco Camp, which amazes with its magnificence and steepness. Conquering it may seem to be daunting, but in reality it is a simple challenge - an easy walking path traverses it.
    Important Note:
    If high altitude sickness or other health disorder cowardly attacks, one or some of the team members, you can bypass Lava Tower by taking the porters’ route. In this scenario the group does not have to reach 4, 6300 meters, the maximum altitude here on the porters’ route is 4400 meters only.

    Elevations: Shira Camp 2 (3, 810 m) - Lava Tower (4, 630 m) - Barranco Camp (3,970)
    Trekking distance: 12 km
    Duration of trekking: 6-8 hours

    Day 4: From Barranco Camp toKaranga Camp

    Early wake up, breakfast and you start conquering the Barranco Wall. We recommend starting as early as possible to outstrip other groups. Sometimes the groups with poor preparation and acclimatization create the “jams. Ascending the wall of the gorge (known as Barancossa) is not a complexity at all. It takes only about one hour. After this accomplishment, you will have an opportunity to rest and take some photos, having spectacular Kibo Volcano as a background.

    Then a relatively complex trekking awaits you. The rest of the way to Karanga is full of highs and lows, but, no worries, our guide will choose the most optimal trekking speed for you. After you reach the camp, a warm lunch will be offered. The rest of the day, you may spend resting and contemplating the magnificent sceneries around.

    Elevations: Barranco Camp (3, 970) – Karanga Camp(3995 m)
    Trekking route distance: 5 km
    Duration of trekking: 4-5 hours

    Day 5: From Karanga Camp to Barafu Camp

    Our cooks will serve a breakfast; then you will climb to the summit camp Barafu (4673 m). From there you will make a night push to Uhuru Peak (5895 m). You will spend the remainder of the day there, adapting to the altitude and regaining your stamina.

    Our crew will erect a camp for you, prepare the tents and warm sleeping bags to give you a complete rest before the night Uhuru climb. The guide will advise you going sleep early and to taking in Diamox and other pills if necessary. They will reduce the unpleasant symptoms of high altitude sickness. Try to drink much water and rest more. Always remember that acclimatization is the best with minimal physical activity.

    Elevations: Karanga Camp (3995 m) - Barafu Camp (4, 673m)
    Trekking route distance: 6 km
    Duration of trekking: 4-5 hours

    Day 6: From Barafu Camp to Uhuru Peak and then to Millennium Camp

    At night, the team leaves the Barafu Camp (4673 m) and starts conquering Uhuru Peak (5895 m). Technically, this leg of your journey is not difficult, but high altitude is really a challenge. A guide will accompany each couple of the climbers. He will monitor your stamina and fortitude. Once Uhuru is successfully conquered, the group may descend to the glacier.
    Then, the group will go down to Barafu Camp. After a two hours rest, you will continue descending to Millennium Camp (3750 m).

    Important note:
    Do not forget that the 90% of all accidents (broken hands, legs, fractures and strains) happened on the way down. Legs and feet are the most vulnerable areas (especially nails on toes).

    Day 7: From Millennium Camp to Mweka Gate

    The camp is located amidst the dense tropical forest. Waking up in the morning, satisfied with your accomplishment, you will feel great relief because of lowering altitude. Our cooks will offer you a warm breakfast, and you will start going down to the exit from the National Park - Mweka Gate (1640 m). Then, the team will salute and congratulate you. You will have an opportunity to leave your memories in the Mountain Kilimanjaro guestbook.
