The Machame route is very scenic with beautiful landscapes. It is the most popular and successful route leading to the summit of Kilimanjaro. The key to the success of the Machame route is topography, allowing hikers to climb high and sleep low, helping towards better acclimatisation. Hikers sleep in tents which are carried up to the mountain by porters.
If you climb seven days, on the fourth day spend over night at the Karanga camp, whereas at the six days Machame route you will continue your hike on the fourth day from Karanga camp to Barafu camp. Mountain climbing in Tanzania is a once in lifetime experience!
