6 Days Machame Route

Team Guide Africa Tours leads treks up to the Machame, a beautiful route up to Kilimanjaro summit that allows you to experience the southwest and south sides of the mountain, since you go up one way and down another. All your equipment and supplies are carried by portersand a cook prepares all your meals. Unlike the Marangu Route where you sleep in huts, on the Machame you sleep in tents (tents are included), and the porters will pitch your tent for you. Meals are served in a dinner tent or on a blanket outside. The Machame, is referred to as the “Whiskey Route,” better suited to more adventurous hikers, and it also rewards you with better views than the Marangu Route. From late afternoon sunsets at Shira, to the misty revelations of Kibo’s great Barranco Wall, the Machame Route offers the spunky hiker a continuous scenic slide show. The Machame Route is normally completed in 6 days, and this greatly helps your acclimatization. The Machame Route takes you high to Lava Tower (4,630 m/15,190 ft) on day 3 then brings you down for an overnight at Barranco Camp (3,950 m/12,960 ft). This intermediate ascent and descent is the secret to a successful acclimatization, and is the reason that this route has a high success rate. Itinerary 1450 USD per person Includes:All park fees, transport, food, camping equipments, salary for guide and porters, water. Not included: Tip for guides and porters.
