Offer Offer Offer For Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro 6Days 5Night Machame Route Tour

Package Duration
6 Days / 5 Nights
Destination Covered
Moshi - Dodoma

  • Day 1 : Drive to Kilimanjaro National Park Machame Gate, Hike to Machame Camp

    Description :

    Drive from Moshi to the Mount Kilimanjaro National Park Gate takes about 45 minutes. The journey passes through the village of Machame which is located on the lower slopes of the mountain.

    We depart the park gate and walk through the rain forest on a winding trail up a ridge. At lower elevations the trail can be muddy and slippery. Gaiters and trekking poles are a good idea here. We continue a short distance until we reach the Machame Camp.

    Elevation: 1830m/6000ft to 3050m/9950ft
    Distance: 11km/7mi
    Hiking Time: 5-6 hours
    Habitat: Montane Forest

    Day 2 : Hike Machame Camp to Shira Camp

    Description :

    After breakfast we leave the glades of the rain forest and continue on an ascending path, crossing the valley along a steep rocky ridge. The route now turns west onto a river gorge until we arrive at the Shira campsite.

    Elevation: 3050m/9950ft to 3850m/12,600ft
    Distance: 5km/3mi
    Walking Time: 4-5 hours
    Habitat: Moorland

    Day 3 : Hike Shira Camp to Lava Tower to Barranco Camp

    Description :

    From the Shira Plateau we continue to the east up a ridge, passing the junction towards the peak of Kibo. As we continue, our direction changes to the South East towards the Lava Tower, called the “Shark’s Tooth” (elev 4650m/15,250ft). Shortly after the tower we come to the second junction which goes to the Arrow Glacier. We now continue down to the Barranco Camp. Although you end the day around the same elevation as when you began, this day is very important for acclimatization and will help your body prepare for summit day.

    Elevation: 3850m/12,600ft to 4000m/13,000ft
    Distance: 10km/6mi
    Walking Time: 5-6 hours
    Habitat: Semi-desert

    Day 4 : Hike Barranco Camp to Barafu Camp

    Description :

    After breakfast, we leave Barranco and continue on a steep ridge up the Barranco Wall (elev 4250m/13,900ft), through the Karanga Valley (elev 4050m/13,250ft) to the junction which connects with the Mweka Trail. We continue up to the Barafu Camp. You have completed the South Circuit, which offers views of the summit from many different angles. Here we make camp with views of the summit in the distance.

    Elevation: 4000m/13,000ft to 4700m/15,350ft
    Distance: 9km/6mi
    Hiking Time: 6-8 hours
    Habitat: Alpine Desert

    Day 5 : Hike Barafu Camp to Summit, down to Mweka Camp

    Description :

    Very early in the morning (midnight to 2 am), we continue our way to the summit between the Rebmann and Ratzel glaciers. You head in a northwesterly direction and ascend through heavy scree towards Stella Point on the crater rim. This is the most mentally and physically challenging portion of the trek. At Stella Point you will stop for a short rest and will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise you are ever likely to see. Faster hikers may view the sunrise from the summit.

    From Stella Point, you may encounter snow all the way on your 1-hour ascent to the summit. Once at Uhuru Peak you have reached the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa!

    From the summit we begin our descent by continuing straight down to the Mweka Camp, stopping at Barafu for lunch. You may want gaiters and trekking poles for the loose gravel going down. We arrive at Mweka Camp and enjoy our last evening on the mountain.

    Elevation: 4700m/15,350ft to 5895m/19,340ft
    Down to 3090m/10,150ft
    Distance: 5km/3mi up / 13km/8mi down

    Habitat: Stone scree and ice-capped summit

  • Other Benefits (On Arrival)
    Description :
    the route is relatively hard and complicated but 99% assured to summit, no acclimatization problem.
    6 days machame route climbing


    If Marangu is the “Coca Cola” route, then the Machame Route is the “Whiskey” route. It is the second most popular and one of the most scenic routes on the mountain.

    All climbers sleep in tents (tents are included) and meals are served in a dinner tent or on a blanket outside.

    It is done over 6 days, so acclimatization is easier, and the success rate is fairly high. It is for physically fit people with some hiking experience. Descent is down the Mweka trail staying at the Mweka or Millennium camp the final night on the mountain.
