Machame Route: This 6 – day route, known as the "Whiskey" route, begins at Machame Gate, located in the southern base of mountain, within its green, abundant rainforest. We climb to the Shira Plateau, and then traverse the mountain beneath Kilimanjaro's Southern Ice field, before summiting from Barafu Hut. Machame is a good choice for people who want to enjoy a scenic hike on a challenging route in the shortest amount of time.
Day 1 – Machame Gate:
After completing the necessary registration formalities at Machame National Park gate, we begin to trek through a beautiful and lush forest. We have a picnic lunch en route. We camp at Machame Camp (9, 800 ft). [5-6 hours walking]
Day 2 – Shira Camp:
We soon leave the forest behind and enter the moorland zone of giant heather. The trail climbs steadily through rocky hills with wide views of the Shira Plateau (11, 000 ft). From our camp near Shira Hut (12, 600 ft), we take in the unforgettable views of Mt. Meru as she floats among the clouds. [4-5 hours walking]
Day 3 – Barrancco Camp:
A morning of sustained ascent and panoramic views brings us to lunch near Lava Tower (14, 900 ft). The trail then descends to the bottom of the Barranco Valley (12, 800 ft), where we stay in the spectacular Barranco Camp sheltered by towering cliffs and with extensive views of the plains far below.
[7-9 hours walking]
Day 4 – Barafu Camp:
A steep climb up the Barranco Wall leads us to an undulating trail on the southeastern flank of Kibo, with superb vistas of the Southern Icefields. The terrain changes to scree, with pockets of lush vegetation in sheltered hollows. We trek past Karanga Camp (13, 100 ft) and continue along a path on compacted scree that gains altitude unrelentingly to reach Barafu Hut (14, 800 ft). After dinner, we sleep early to prepare for the early morning final ascent. [7-11 hours walking]
Day 5 – Summit (Uhuru Peak) – Barafu Camp – Mweka Camp:
We start our ascent by torchlight about 1 a. m. so that we can be up on the crater rim by sunrise. The steep climb over loose volcanic scree has some well–graded zig-zags and a slow but steady pace will take us to Stella Point (18, 800 ft), in about five or six hours. We will rest there for a short time to enjoy the sunrise over Mawenzi. Those who are still feeling strong can make the two-hour round trip from here along the crater rim to Uhuru Peak (19, 345 ft), passing close to the spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs that still occupy most of the summit area. The descent to Barafu is surprisingly fast, and after some refreshments, we continue to descend to reach our final campsite, Millenium Camp (12, 500 ft). [11-15 hours walking]
Day 6 – Mweka Gate – Back to Arusha:
A sustained descent on a well constructed path takes us through a lovely tropical forest alive with birdsong and boasting lush undergrowth with considerable botanical interest. Our route winds down to the Kilimanjaro National Park gate at Mweka (5, 400 ft); and on through coffee and banana farms to Mweka village, where you will be transferred to Arusha. (4 – 6 hours walking).
