Kilimanjaro Climb 7 Days Machame Route


Machame Route terrain is very varied as we pass through different eco-systems as we ascend the mountain. We trek on overgrown forest paths, moorland, rocky trail and scree. Much of the walking is rough underfoot. Lower down it can be wet and muddy; higher up barren and arid. This trek is challenging in itself, but the main challenge lies in the altitude. The Machame Route allows for excellent acclimatisation to the altitude as it contours around the mountain, rather than going straight up, and allows you to trek higher than you sleep at important points on the ascent.
