Machame route - Kilimanjaro - 6 days
Machame route is probably the most complete trail taking you to Kilimanjaro summit – it is used uphill, and is combined with Mewka route for the descent which makes for a circle shaped itinerary. The accommodation is in tents that are carried by porters. It is considered one of the most beautiful routes, so every year the number of people using it increases. The tough challenge of this route has made Machame worthy of the nickname ‘Whiskey Route’.
This trail can be completed in six days. Its key for success is its topography, which allows hikers to climb to new heights during the day and to camp at lower levels at night, helping to better acclimatize. On this route there are two highlights that are physically demanding, the Shira Ridge and Barranco Wall.
