Itinerary

Day 1 : Kilimanjaro National Park Gate to Mandara Hut

Elevation: 5,500 ft / 1,700 m to 9,000 ft / 2,740 m

Distance: 7 km

Hiking time: 4-5 hours

Habitat: Montane Forest

       After breakfast and briefing, drive to the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate for about 45 minutes, our official will take care of registration and immediately start the climb. Walk through the rainforest to the Mandara encampment. A side trip to Maundi Crater is a good way to see the surroundings including Northern Tanzania and Kenya. In the rainforest, birds and Colobus monkeys can be spotted.

 

Day 2 : Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut

Elevation: 9,000 ft / 2,700 m to 12,100 ft / 3,700 m

Distance: 11 km

Hiking time: 6-8 hours

Habitat: Heathland

       You leave the glades of the rainforest and follow an ascending path on the open moorlands to the Horombo encampment. Views of Mawenzi and the summit of Kibo are amazing. Look for giant lobelias and grounsels. You may begin to feel the effects of the altitude.

 

Day 3 : Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut

Elevation: 12,100 ft / 3,700 m to 15,400 ft / 4,700 m

Distance: 10 km

Hiking time: 6-8 hours

Habitat: Alpine Desert

      Horombo is  the last watering point. After breakfast walk onto the saddle of Kilimanjaro between the peaks of Kibo and Mawenzi. Vegetation begins with upper heathland but then disappears into "moonscape". Dinner, rest, and prepare for summit climb.

 

Day 4 : Kibo Hut to Summit then Horombo Hut

Elevation: 15,400 ft / 4,700 m to 19,300 ft / 5,895 m

19,300 ft / 5,895 m to 12,100 ft / 3,700 m

Distance: 4 km up / 14 km down

Hiking distance: 10-15 hours

Habitat: Alpine Desert

      We commence the climb to the summit in midnight on steep and heavy scree or snow up to Gilman's point located on the crater rim. Continuing, we now ascend to Uhuru Peak, which is the highest point in Africa. Have your picture taken at the summit to show your friends and family then we descend, stopping for lunch and a rest at Kibo before continuing on to the Horombo huts.

AS this climb is done in the dark, we requires headlamps or flashlights. It will be very cold until you start descending, so you will need all of your warm layers. This is by far the most difficult part of the trek with many switchbacks. Going slowly "pole pole" and an optimistic attitude will get you there!

 

Day 5 : Horombo Hut to Moshi

Elevation: 12,100 ft / 3,700 m to 5,500 ft / 1,700 m

Walking hours: 5-7 hours

      After breakfast, a steady descent takes us down through moorland to the Mandara Hut. Continue descending through lush forest path to the National Park gate at Marangu. At lower elevations, it can be wet and muddy. Gaiters and trekking poles will help.

A vehicle will meet you at Marangu village to drive you back to your hotel in Moshi or Arusha. Don't forget to tip your guides and porters.
