MT. KILIMANJARO ROUTES

GROUP ROUTES

Kili Ascents has already done the leg work by putting together great climbing itineraries that are the most popular on the mountain. Come alone or with 2 or 3 of your friends, family or colleagues and join a group of climbers from around the world. Each route is designed to accommodate up to 12 climbers with a guide ratio of 1:2. These routes allow for novice, intermediate and advanced climbers the right amount of acclimation time while being brilliantly scenic and range from moderate to slightly more challenging. 

When deciding on a route, the meaning of difficulty is in direct relation to the duration of the climb. The shorter the climb, the higher the intensity will be as you are advancing up the mountain with less time for acclimatizing. Regardless of how long the trek is that you decide on, the mantra of "Pole Pole" will be very common along your journey. "Pole, Pole" or "Slow, Slow" in Swahili, is the name of the game!   

All Group and Private Tours include 2 nights hotel stay, transportation to and from accommodations and Mt. Kilimanjaro along with breakfest, lunch and dinner on the mountain. 

Lemosho - 8 Days/7 Nights - ($2,850)

The Lemosho route is the most scenic option and besides the Northern Circuit, Lemosho offers an optimal amount of time for acclimation. The route tends to be less crowded for the first two days through the rain forest until it meets with the Machame route at Lava Tower.

The trail from Karanga to Barafu reaches the bleak high desert of Kilimanjaro. Barafu Camp is a basic camp geared towards the business of reaching the summit. Today involves careful adjustment to altitude and we may face the elements of mother nature with the weather as we become exposed to cross winds at Barafu Ridge (16,000ft./4870mts.) We aim to eat and retire earlier on this day as we rise by midnight to start the trek to the summit.


Day 7:- Barafu Camp(4,600m/15,091 ft) to The Summit (5,896 m/19,343 ft) and then to Mweka Camp(3,100 m/10,170 ft)

Final elevation: 1,828 m/6,000 ft


We continue our descent across moorland towards Mweka Gate where you can happily know your trekking experience has ended! However, this day is still fairly strenuous, not least because of the environment which can be wet as we will be returning through the rainforest. Some walkers can also find they go slower when descending so we do allow for this. We should be aiming for 5/6 hours.  Finally, we will transport you to your accommodation for celebration and relaxation before a well deserved sleep.
