6DAYS MOUNT KILIMANJARO - MACHAME ROUTE

 

Itinerary Overview

 
 
Machame is the second most popular route on Kili, known as the 'Whiskey Route' as it's a more difficult climb and accommodation is in tents. The trek takes 6 or 7 days, approaching from the southwest and travelling through forests, moorland, the Shira plateau, past the Lava Tower and Great Barranco Wall before summiting via the Barafu route. The descent is via the Mweka route in the southeast, meaning Machame offers much more varied scenery than the Marangu route as well as a more challenging climb.
