Rongai Route

This is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north not so far from the Kenyan boarder. Its becoming more popular but still has the merits of low traffic. During the rainy seasons, the north side receives less rains and making this route idea at these times.

Rongai is rated moderate in difficulty and it takes you through the wilderness for giving you a true sense of the wild before joining up with the machame route at Kibo hut. Second to Lemosho, it is also recommended to inexperienced hikers and those who desire less traffic. Though the scenery is not in the same league as the western routes as it is doesn’t offer such amazing views.

A 7 or 8 day hike via this route is recommended although the minimum number of days is 6. After summiting, hikers will descend via the Marangu route.
