Highlights

  • Hike through dense rainforest
  • Reach the summit of Kilimanjaro
  • Sleep in cozy huts
  • Get a stunning view of the Kenyan interior

Description

Day 1: Marangu Gate to Mandara Hut Hike through the dense rainforest and get the chance to catch a glimpse of some primates as you head to the Mandara Hut. After a well-earned rest, your guide can take you to the Maundi Crater where you can enjoy the wonderful view of the Kenyan interior. Day 2: Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut Reach the timberline and then enter the heath and moor zone. Approximately 4-6 hours later, the Horombo Hut will come into sight, standing at an altitude of 3700m. From the hut, you will have fantastic views overlooking Mawenzi, Kibo, and the wide plain of the Masai steppe. Day 3: Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut Pass the “Last Water point”, followed by the so-called “saddle”. This near vegetation less plateau joins the main summit Kibo with Mawenzi. Reach Kibo Hut in about 5-6 hours and enjoy an early evening meal followed by an early night, as the night will be short. Day 4: Kibo Hut to Uhuru Peak and down to Horombo Hut Begin your final ascent around midnight which will be long and strenuous. Pass the Hans Meyer Cave at 5220m. At sunrise, reach Gillman’s Point (5681m), the crater rim of Kilimanjaro, where the sun will slowly start to warm up the land. Reach Uhuru Peak at 5895m. On your return to Kibo Hut, a warm meal awaits you followed by a 1-2 hour break before proceeding back down to Horombo Hut. Day 5: Horombo Hut to Marangu Gate Pass through the heath and moor zone to the Mandara Hut. Once again pass the tropical rainforest and after a total time of 6 hours trekking, arrive back at the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate. After saying goodbye to your mountain guides, take a short transfer back to your hotel in Moshi.
