Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro via The Machame Route
The Machame Route, also known as the Whiskey Route, is one of the most scenic and recommended routes in Kilimanjaro. This popular route features trails through beautiful forests to reach a ridge that leads across the moors to the Shira Plateau. Then traverse the ice-covered chasms of southern glaciers to join the Barafu route to the top. Since it can be done for longer periods of time and the slope is more manageable, it has a much higher success rate at the summit.

Starting in Moshi, drive 45 minutes through Machame village to Kilimanjaro National Park Gate. We will wait patiently for our permits to be issued as we watch the hustle and bustle of operations as many crews prepare for the voyage. Enjoy beautiful rainforest scenery and windswept trails as your guide talks about local flora and fauna and natural wildlife. At these lower elevations, the trail can be muddy and quite slippery. We highly recommend gaiters and trekking poles here.
