7 Days 6 Nights


Also referred to as the Whisky Route Machame is currently the favorite route among many climbers. The classic duration to the top is 7 days, or you can have the option of skipping one day and making it six days. It is alongside Lemosho Route, the most picturesque route on Kilimanjaro. The hike follows steeper paths and is more adventurous, especially because of the famous Breakfast Wall (Barranco Wall). On the fifth day Machame Route merges with Lemosho Route. Both routes take from here the same trek up to Uhuru Peak. Great for acclimatization with lots of walk high, sleep low opportunities
