Trekking Overview :

This trip to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, which takes place over the course of six days and takes travellers down the Rongai Route, which is less trafficked than other routes, provides a totally unique experience. The walk begins at the Nalemoru Gate and takes hikers through verdant rainforests that are alive with the calls of exotic birds before arriving to gorgeous moorlands that provide breathtaking panoramas. Each of the campsites, including Simba Camp, Kikelewa Camp, and Mawenzi Tarn Camp, reveals scenery that are more spectacular than the previous one. On day 4, you will arrive at the high-altitude and desolate Kibo Hut, which will serve as your base for the last ascent to the peak. The fifth day of the climb is an early-morning journey to the peak of Uhuru Peak, which is Africa’s highest point. The descent takes you through a variety of landscapes that are always changing, beginning at the rocky Kibo Hut and ending in the vivid rainforests. You will arrive at Marangu Gate on day 6 with a tremendous feeling of achievement. This path, which was carefully planned out, offers visitors a novel viewpoint of Kilimanjaro’s beauty as well as its hardships.

 

 

Day 1: Nalemoru Gate (1990m) to Simba Camp (2625m)

Our adventure starts at Nalemoru Gate, which is the entrance to the world-famous Kilimanjaro National Park. Following completion of the necessary paperwork for the permission and registration, we will start our climb. The path takes us through verdant woods that are alive with the songs of unusual birds and the rustling of monkeys. As we continue to climb, the surrounding area will eventually turn into moorland, and the mesmerising panoramas will be spread out before us. We make it to Simba Camp, our first destination, which is situated at an elevation of 2625 metres. There is a feeling of eagerness for the days that are to come as a result of the tranquil atmosphere that is there as well as the promise of the adventure that lies ahead.

Day 2: Simba camp (2626m) – Kikelewa Camp (3679m)

The second day of our journey along the Rongai Route begins with us continuing our climb and leaving Simba Camp in our wake. The route passes through a wide variety of settings, from rocky pathways to alpine desert vistas, each of which is home to its own distinctive flora and fauna. Kikelewa Camp is located at an elevation of 3679 metres, and we make a slow ascent to get there. The breathtaking vistas of Kilimanjaro’s dramatic surrounds are becoming more noticeable, which serves as a reminder of the extraordinary expedition that we are about to embark upon.

Day 3: Kikelewa Cave (3679m) – Mawenzi Tarn camp (4303m)

On the third day of our hike, we visit the gorgeous Kikelewa Cave, which is also a fascinating stop along the route. Mawenzi Tarn Camp is located at a height of 4303 metres, so we climb to that location before continuing our journey further into the alpine desert. Mawenzi Peak, a subsidiary peak of Kilimanjaro, and the beautiful tarn that gives the camp its name can be seen from the camp, which provides some of the most stunning views in the area. This campground is a wonderful area to relax and become acclimated as a result of its stunning surroundings and peaceful atmosphere.

Day 4: Mawenzi Tarn camp (4303m) – Kibo hut (4730m)

The Mawenzi Tarn Camp is already in our rearview mirror as we continue our climb. The path leads us to Kibo Hut, which is strategically located at a height of 4730 metres and will serve as our base camp for the effort to reach the summit. As we climb higher into the mountains, the air gets thinner, and the terrain becomes more dry and rough. Kibo Hut, with its desolate and rocky surroundings, offers us a platform to prepare for the challenging summit day that lies ahead of us.

Day 5 – Kibo hut (4730m) – Uhuru Peak (5895m) – Horombo hut (3705m)

Our trip will reach its pinnacle on Day 5, when we start the ascent to the top of the mountain. We begin our trek in the wee hours of the morning, guided by the light of our headlamps as we make our way up the treacherous and snowy slopes. The gigantic Uhuru Peak, which stands at 5895 metres and is the highest point in Africa, was successfully conquered by our team by pure willpower and persistence. The spectacular dawn that we got as a reward for all of our hard work over Africa is really unforgettable. After taking in the breathtaking panoramas, we start our descent by heading back to Kibo Hut, and then we continue on to Horombo Hut, which is located at 3,705 metres. During our decline, we are accompanied with the happiness that comes from our accomplishments.

Day 6: Horombo hut (3705m) – Marangu Gate (1860m)

The gorgeous jungle that we pass through on our descent from Kilimanjaro is a stark contrast to the difficult landscape that we traversed on our way up the mountain. Today is our last day on Kilimanjaro. The thriving woodland comes to life thanks to the luxuriant vegetation and the beautiful cacophony of bird melodies. Our voyage comes to an end at Marangu Gate, where we are presented with diplomas attesting to the great accomplishments we have achieved as a result of our hard work. Our incredible journey up the “Roof of Africa” came to an end as we said our last goodbyes to Kilimanjaro National Park and expressed our appreciation to the hardworking guides and porters who had helped us along the way.

F.A.Q

Which route is the easiest on Kilimanjaro?

The Rongai Pathway or Route (the easiest route up Kilimanjaro.)

What is the oxygen saturation level of the blood at Kilimanjaro?

Kilimanjaro's peak has around 49 percent of the oxygen that is found at sea level, making it the highest point in Africa. Both the proportion of oxygen that is saturated in the blood and the pace at which your heart is beating are measures of how effectively your body is acclimatising to the higher altitude.

What is the temperature at the summit of Kilimanjaro when it is at its coldest?

The nighttime temperature at the summit of Kilimanjaro, also known as Uhuru Peak, which is located in the arctic zone, may fall to as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit ( -29 degrees Celsius). As a result, we cannot stress enough how important it is for you to always be ready for rainy and chilly evenings.

Is it possible to see a snow leopard on Kilimanjaro?

The discovery of a leopard preserved in ice at the peak of Kilimanjaro came as a complete surprise. Leopards like these typically hunt at an elevation that is around 9,000 feet lower. The peak is inhospitable for human habitation. The Snows of Kilimanjaro was Hemingway's short tale, and he began it with an epigraph about a leopard that had frozen solid.

Is it possible that Kilimanjaro may erupt again?

Mawenzi, Shira, and Kibo are the three volcanic cones that make up Kilimanjaro. Mawenzi and Shira have both been extinguished as active volcanoes, although Kibo, the highest mountain, is now inactive but has the potential to become active again. The most recent activity occurred around 200 years ago, whereas the most recent massive eruption occurred 360,000 years ago.
