MACHAME ROUTE -  6  DAYS

 

Day 1   
Early Morning drive to Machame route, often called the "Whiskey Route". 
From the Machame Park gate is a gentle climb up through the original mountain forest, carpeted with unique -busy lizzie- flowers, begonias and ferns. 
First camp amongst the giant heather at 3,000m. Ascent of 1,200m and 5 to 6 hours walking.

 

Day 2
Emerge from the giant heather zone and hike through fine open moorland to camp by the Shira Cave at 3,840m. 
Herds of eland up here (& occasional lion!) and there are fascinating geological features in the old volcanic caldera , 
which can be viewed during a half-houroptional walk in the afternoon. Ascent 840m and 4 to 5 hours walking.

 

 

Day 3
From Shira, climb towards the main peak Kibo, with the western glaciers clearly visible across the rugged high-altitude desert of volcanic rocks and boulders. 
Skirting around its base and under the imposing western Breach, descend into the sheltered Barranco Valley for mid-way camp at 3,950m. 6 to 7 hours , 
walking and only 110m total ascent but having climbed much higher and dropped back down assists acclimatization.

 

Day 4
Up the steep Barranco wall with some sections of very easy scrambling and drop down again to the Karanga Valley where you take a break for lunch.
After lunch hike on to Barafu Hut 4600m, having hiked a total of 7 to , 8 hours and ascended 650m. 
You have fantastic views across to Mawenzi peak from the camp after having completed a longer day of hiking which now requires you to adequately relax in preparation of the challenging summit hike early the following morning.

Day 5
A bracing 1am start to climb the steep frozen scree. This is unavoidable on any route but we aim to go past Gillman's Point to reach . Stella Point on the crater rim for sunrise another 40 minutes and you are at the highest point on the continent (Kibo:5900m), usually in warm sunshine. 
Return on the Mweka descent route.Ascent of 1,300m and about 7 hours trek to the summit; 2,600m descent and 6 to 7 hours trek to the Mweka campsite (3400m) above Mweka gate. This is a long hard day but you feel absolutely static when you have done it!

 

Day 5
From Mweka campsite it is a 4 to 5 hours descent through the forest to Mweka gate (depending on individual fitness) to collect certificates and meet the vehicle.  
You will be transferred to the airport for your flight home , flight departs Kilimanjaro.
