Machame Route (7 days) – Enosa Expeditions

Find your trekking - Kilimanjaro

The roof of Africa. At the foot you’ll find giraffes, lions and elephants and at the top you’ll find nothing but snow. Mount Kilimanjaro is the most famous mountain in the world. As a child you saw it in the background of the Lion King and ever since you have been wanting to climb it. The mystique of the almost 19’500 feet high massif is one in a thousand.
The Crown of Africa is relatively easy to climb for both seasoned mountaineers and amateurs. For untrained legs, there is the Marangu Route, known as the Coca-Cola Route. This is because the Marangu is the only route with comfortable huts where food and water is provided. The mountain goats choose the Umbwe Route. This route is known for its gravity and requires an iron will.

The most popular route is the Machame, better known as the Whisky Route. This trek lasts 6 or 7 days and is known for its breathtaking views. When it comes to climate zones, it doesn’t matter which route you choose. The Marangu, Machame, Rongai, Shira, Lemosho and Umbwe all migrate through various climate zones to the snow.
