KILIMANJARO CLIMBING RONGAI - ROUTE FOR 7days / 6 nights. Price
540 USD per person
Mount Kilimanjaro Rongai Route,Kilimanjaro-Rongai Route The Rongai route
is much drier than the southern routes. Elephants and colubus monkeys
can be found on the way. As the ascent continues, climbers can enjoy spectacular
views over the immense Masai plains of Kenya
route ascents Kilimanjaro from the northeastern side of the mountain,
along the border between Tanzania and Kenya. This route retains a sense
of unspoilt wilderness and offers a different perspective on Kilimanjaro
by approaching it from the north.. Experienced guides consider the Rongai
route to be both easier and more scenic than the Marangu Trail. Summit
attempts begin in the pre-dawn hours, with climbers usually reaching Gillman's
Point at sunrise. For those who feel strong enough, an approximately three
hour round trip hike will take you from Gillman's Point to Uhuru Peak.

begin your hike from the Nale Moru village. The small winding path crosses
maize fields before entering pine forest, and then climbs gently through
a forest. The trail is not at all steep, but is rather a gentle hike through
beautiful country. The first night's camp is at First Cave, at about 2,600

be found just down the trail below First Cave, B,L,D.

a way to find some. Overnight at 3rd Cave camp (Kikelewa Caves), B,L,D.

SUMMIT ATTEMPT, Kibo hut (4700m) - Uhuru Peak (5895m) - Horombo hut
Hiking time: 8 hours to reach Uhuru, 6 hours to descend to Horombo |Distance:
6 km's ascent - 21 km's descent | Habitat: Stone scree and ice-capped
You will rise around 23h30, and after some tea and biscuits you shuffle
off into the night. This is where the going really gets tough. The first
section of the trail consists of a rocky path to the Hans Meyer Cave (5150m),
also a good resting spot. The path then zigzags up to Gillman's point
(5 681m), which is located on the crater rim. This section is very steep
with a lot of stone scree, requiring a great physical and mental effort.
Probably the most demanding section of the entire route. Do the Kili shuffle
and move slowly.
From Gillman's Point you will normally encounter snow all the way up to
Uhuru peak (5895m), the highest point in Africa. Total exhilaration and
satisfaction - you made it. Weather conditions on the summit will determine
how long you can spend, taking photographs, before the 3-hour descent
back to Kibo hut. After a short rest you gather all your gear for the
ascent and head down to Horombo hut (3 hours) where you will overnight.
The return to Horombo hut will seem surprisingly fast compared to the
ascent. The total time spent walking on this day is around 14 hours, so
be prepared for a very tough day. Later in the evening you enjoy your
last dinner (with soft drink and beer for sale at the camp office) on
the mountain and well-earned sleep, filled with memories and stirring
