Trekking Overview :

You are about to embark on an exciting journey that will last for six days via the Marangu Route, which serves as the doorway to the magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro. Your tour will begin at Marangu Gate (1860m), where you will be surrounded by verdant rainforests that are teeming with a diverse array of plants. On day one, you get off to a slow start as you make your way to the Mandara Hut (2,700 metres), where you may relax and get your energy back in preparation for the trials that lie ahead. The second day of the trek takes you from the lower altitudes of Mandara Hut to the higher elevations of Horombo Hut, which is located at 3,700 metres. Along the way, the terrain changes from jungle to moorland. Acclimatization is facilitated by spending the night in the Horombo Hut, which brings you that much closer to your ultimate objective of ascending the beautiful Uhuru Peak. On day three of the trek, you will make your way to the breathtaking Mawenzi Ridge, where you will find yourself in an alpine desert surrounded by towering peaks. This will be a crucial milestone on your way to the top of the mountain. On day four, you will continue climbing from Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut, which is located at an elevation of 4,700 metres. This will bring you closer to the arid alpine desert and bring Uhuru Peak into clearer sight. The most exciting portion of your journey will begin on day five, when you will begin the ascent to Uhuru Peak, which is Africa’s highest point, before sunrise. Experiencing the dawn from the peak is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and the frozen, surreal environment that you will encounter as you move closer to the peak will reward you with an incredible feeling of accomplishment. After reaching Uhuru Peak, you will make your way down to Horombo Hut, which is located at an elevation of 3,700 metres, for some time spent reflecting and getting ready. Your adventure will reach its conclusion on day six, when you descend from Horombo Hut to Marangu Gate. Along the way, you will have more chances to relish the beautiful vistas and contemplate the tremendous accomplishments you have made. When you finally make it to Marangu Gate, you will have successfully accomplished an astonishing journey that will remain in your memory for the rest of your life.
