Mt. Kilimanjaro (5895 m) is the highest walkable point in the world. Kilimanjaro is the world’s one and only safely accessible high summit, with nearly all trekkers reaching the peak (Uhuru Peak) with just the walking stick, accurate clothing, and willpower.
Trekking Kilimanjaro is like taking a climatic world expedition; from the steamy rain forest on the lower slopes to the Alpine Moorland, and an almost bare desert, concluding with the wintry Arctic summit, just 3 degrees south of the Equator.
Trekking Kilimanjaro can be done from six different routes: Lemosho, Umbwe, Shira, Rongai, Machame, and Marangu (which is the easier one). Depending on which route one wants to take, the standard Kilimanjaro trek can take between 5 to 6 nights on the mountain. The Marangu and Machame are the trekkers’ favorite routes. While the Marangu accommodation is in huts, the Machame route is camping right through. Expert guides, cooks, and potters are included on your trek, no technical equipment is required.
