This is the traditional and most straightforward route on the mountain. It is also the busiest and best equipped. If you accept that there will be others around, there are the advantages of good huts, good views of Mawenzi and, of course, others to walk with. If you are travelling by yourself, this is the only route on which you can easily join a group.
Rongai route is less crowded compared to Marangu, it is the easiest route of all the route. It has a relatively gentle gradient and short daily stages as it winds its way from the standing point just south of the Kenya – Tanzania border through attractive farmland and delightful forest to several other climate zone.
This is one of the shortest routes to the southern glaciers and the western breach of Kibo. An ascent to Kibo via the Umbwe route is probably one of the most scenic ‘non-technic’ mountaineering expeditions in East Africa. It is quite taxing, primarily due to the relatively fast ascent to higher altitudes, but the rewards are plentiful, fewer people, pristine forest, greater chance of seeing wild animals and birds in the lower level, and shorter walking distance
The early stages of Lemosho route are also your best chance of seeing some wildlife on Mount Kilimanjaro, with monkeys prevalent in the forest. The Lemosho route is perfect for those who want to talk a slightly longer, more relaxed approach to climbing Kilimanjaro.
TThe Shira plateau is less crowded and one of the most fascinating and scenic areas on Kilimanjaro (Shira plateau and western breach wall). It is well worth visit to explore the ridges and moorland. Climbing via Shira Plateau route looks similar to the Lemosho route. The only difference is that you’ll drive from Londorosi gate to Morrum barrier, about 22km, which takes less than 2 hour and the hike can start from there.
At 4,566m, Mt. Meru is the second highest mountain in Tanzania. It is one of Africa’s highest and most beautiful volcanoes that offers views and wildlife sightings that is unparalleled in Tanzania. Lying within Arusha National Park, Mt. Meru is a stunning mountain to climb.
