Machame Route

Machame Route is the most popular route on Kilimanjaro. As a result, it can get fairly crowded during the high season. The trek provides sweeping views across the Maasai Steepe, Mount Meru, the majestic Barranco Valley and a variety of habitats. The trail starts from the southern base of Kilimanjaro and enjoys some of the finest forest and moorland scenery on the mountain. The descent path for this route is the Mweka Route.
The great advantage of choosing the Machame Route is the initial 2-day steep ascent that eases the altitude stress in the following days.
