About this trip

 

        7 days Kilimanjaro hiking up via Lemosho route and Ride down  via Marangu route probably has a slight edge on the scenery in large  part because the route up and down is different, The Bike trek is one of  our product of trekking the Kilimanjaro Mountain, with climb up – ride  down option you will hike via Lemosho up to the peak, then ride down  from the peak to Horombo then ride down via Kilema route. Summit bound  visitors will hike with the team up to the summit, on the last day  visitors will ride down from Horombo via Kilema route (19km) and  cyclists then meet their Hiking team at Marangu gate. But the challenge  comes when client select this option will be required to pay the double  fees which might be expensive compared to the normal bike trek tour days  where you Hike/Ride up and ride down via Marangu Route
 

The Machame route, also known as the "Whiskey" route, is the  most popular and beautiful route to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro.  Machame’s draw is in its scenic beauty. However, the trail is considered  difficult, steep and challenging, particularly due to its shorter  itinerary. The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the south
 

The six-day variation combines days four and five, going from Barranco  Camp to Barafu Camp without staying at Karanga. The Machame route  contains more steep passages and higher altitudes than the Marangu and  the Rongai route and is slightly more demanding.

Itinerary

DAY 1: MACHAME CAMP
MOSHI – MACHAME CAMP[7 Days Machame Route ]

 After breakfast you will be picked up at the lodge and taken to the  Kilimanjaro entrance gate. While your guide is busy with the  registration forms, you can be preparing yourself for the climb and once  this is all done, your Kilimanjaro adventure will begin. In no time you  will be deep within the magnificent mountain rainforest with ancient  trees, primeval ferns, liana, lichen and moss that carpets the ground  and drapes from the trees. You will hear and with a little luck, even  spot the beautiful black and white colobus monkeys in the treetops.  After 5 to 6 hours, you will reach Machame Camp which is situated just  above the tree line. Here, at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro, you will have  your first dinner followed by an overnight stay in tents.
