The Rongai route ascents Kilimanjaro from the northeastern side of the mountain, along the border between Tanzania and Kenya. This route retains a sense of unspoilt wilderness and offers a different perspective on Kilimanjaro by approaching it from the north.

How to reach there: Transfer from you hotel and drive from Moshi to Rongai gate 2 hours with our 4WD land cruiser or minibus.

 
OPTION ONE: 5 DAYS / 4 NIGHTS
 

Day One: The climb begins at the village of Nale Moru (1950 mts) through cultivated land before entering the pine forest. Watch out for Kilimanjaro Colobus monkeys in the tree tops with theirwhite fringed 'capes' and tail. Taking 3 - 4 hours the first camp is on the edge of the moorland zone where the forest begins to thin out at First Cave at (8500ft / 2600 m). Overnight 1st Cave Camp

Day Two: The morning walk is a steady ascent up to Second Cave at (11300ft / 3450 m) with superb views of Kibo and the eastern ice fields on the crater rim. Pushing on to reach Third Cave taking 3 to 4 hours at 12800ft/3800m for overnight camp. Overnight 3rd Cave Camp

Day Three: Continue ascending on the east side of Kibo crossing the saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo taking 4 to 5 hours to reach Kibo Hut at (15000ft / 4700 m). The remainder of the day is spent resting in preparation for the final ascent which begins around midnight. Overnight Kibo Camp

Day Four: An early start for the summit on steep heavy scree to arrive at Gilman's Point at (18640ft / 5681 m) in time to see the sun rise. Those who want to reach the highest point in Africa can take the approximately three hour excursion to Uhuru Peak (19340 / 5896 m) passing close to the spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs that still occupy most of the summit area. The descent to Kibo is surprisingly fast and after some refreshment, continue the descent to reach the final campsite at Horombo at (12000ft / 3700 m) taking 11 to 15 hours. Overnight Horombo Camp

Day Five: A steady descent down through the moor land to Mandara Hut and then downward through the lush forest on a good path to the National Park gate at Marangu (1830 m) taking 5 to 7 hours to be met and transferred to your Hotel for dinner and overnight.
