Mt Kilimanjaro - Africas highest mountain
Machame Route (9 Days)9 days, Moshi to Moshi
Feb 2 – 10, 2019
Best Trekking Months
There are two distinct trekking seasons which constitute the best time to climb Kilimanjaro. They are January-March and June-October.
January-March is generally colder than June-October and there is a higher probability of encountering snow on the summit. For some this might be seen as a negative, but the benefits of a January-March trek is that the slopes are often quieter at this time of the year.

Why choose this route;
Mount Kilimanjaro is is the highest mountain in Africa, about 4,900 metres (16,100 ft) from its base to 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level.
I did some research on the best route to take as there are several to choose from. Having done the Inca Trail and hiked to Annapurna Base Camp in the Himalaya I decided that taking an extra day would definitely be worth while so that you have that time to acclimatize to the altitude.
The Machame Route is one of the most popular routes for this reason. As you trek through the 5 eco-systems with fertile Rainforest, Moorland and Alpine zones, this scenically beautiful route over 9 days allows good acclimatisation and has a reputed high success rate for reaching the summit.
Known as the ‘Whisky Route’, compared to the original supposedly easier Maragu ‘Coca Cola’ Route, the Machame actually has a higher success rate due to the additional day acclimatising. It is definitely more scenic and is a firm favourite. Providing the best “Climb High” and “Sleep Low” opportunity, trekking Kilimanjaro to the summit along the Machame Route is highly achievable.
Another highlight of the Machame route is the descent from Barafu Camp via the Mweka camp giving you a variation to your trek, and the chance to spot the rainforest monkeys.
