Rongai Route :

This remote and less frequently used route is the second easiest route to Kilimanjaro.

The approach to the mountain is from the less-forested north side and the descent is by the Marangu Route.

There are several variations, the one described below is a longer route taking in Mawenzi Tarn.


The second day on this variant is quite long and could be broken up into two days walk allowing more time for acclimatisation.

The ascent to Uhuru Peak is almost the same as for the Marangu Route from the Kibo Hut.


Accommodation on the mountain is in tents (even on descent) which the porters will pitch for you.

You will need a sleeping bag, warm clothes and walking poles.

This is a steep, tough trek within the limits of a fit individual used to walking in mountain areas.
