8 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing Machame Route

Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing | Machame Route

Mt Kilimanjaro Climbing via Machame route is considered to be the most beautiful and scenic of the various routes up Mount Kilimanjaro. Machame Route is appropriate for more adventurous hikers who wish for a more physically demanding climb than Marangu or Rongai can offer. You can choose to complete this route in either six days or seven days.  Machame route is the most popular route on Mount Kilimanjaro.

The Machame route is strictly done for not less than 6 days. This is because fewer days spent climbing Mount Kilimanjaro using Machame route bring more risk on Mountain sickness and tiredness. This leads to less performance to the roof top of Africa the Uhuru peak.

All the camps on this route sell goods such as chocolates, beer, soft drinks and mineral water. They also  have a radio contact to the Park Office. This route can be done in 5 days but it is advisable to take an extra day for acclimatization at the Horombo hut. Horombo hut is also the only campsite on Kilimanjaro with beds and mattresses.
