Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro through Rongai route
is very enjoyable and success is
guaranteed.Kilimanjaro climbing on Rongai trail
is scenic and easier, no stress and climbing is
Duration: 6 Days - RONGAI
The Rongai 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.
It is more exhilarating and rewarding route
because you experience more. You experience more
in the sense that you trek through two routes.
You ascent through Rongai route and descend
through Marangu route. It s like throwing one
stone and kill two birds.
Day 1: Rongai Gate (1950m) - 1st Caves camp
Hiking time: 5 hours.
Distance: About 8 km's.
Habitat: Montane forest
Register at the Marangu park gate with a
transfer (approximately 2 ½ hours) to the Rongai
trailhead. Meet your guide and porters before
you 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 metres. There is a
toilet and a wooden table with benches, but no
hut. Water can be found just down the trail
below First Cave.
Day 2: 1st Cave (2600m) - Kikelewa Cave
Hiking time: 6-7 hours.
The trail continues up towards Kibo, passing
Second Cave (3450m) en-route, and reaching
Kikelwa Cave at about 3600 metres. The views
start to open up and you begin to feel you're on
a really big mountain! Water is in the obvious
stream below the cave, although you might have
to wander downhill a way to find some. Overnight
at 3rd Cave camp (Kikelewa Caves).
Day 3: Kikelewa Cave (3600) - Mawenzi Tarn
Hiking time: 3-4 hours.
A short but steep climb up grassy slopes offers
superb views of this wilderness area. The
vegetation zone ends shortly before you reach
your next camp at Mawenzi Tarn spectacularly
situated beneath the towering spires of Mawenzi.
Spend the afternoon acclimatizing and exploring
Day 4: Mawenzi Tarn camp (4330m) - Kibo hut
Hiking time: 4 - 5 hours.
Habitat: Alpine desert.
ascending on the east side of Kibo crossing the
saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo taking 4 to 5
hours to reach Kibo Hut. The remainder of the
day is spent resting in preparation for the
final ascent, which begins around midnight.
Overnight at Kibo Camp.
Day 5: SUMMIT ATTEMPT, Kibo hut (4700m) -
Uhuru Peak (5895m) - Horombo hut (3720m).
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 summit.
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 drinks and beer for
sale at the camp office) on the mountain and
well-earned sleep, filled with memories and
Day 6: Horombo hut (3720m) - Marangu Gate
Hiking time: 6 hours.
Distance: About 27 km's.
After breakfast you continue your descent (6
hours), passing the Mandara hut, down to the
Marangu gate. At Marangu gate you sign your name
and details in a register. This is also where
successful climbers receive their summit
certificates. Those climbers who reached
Gillman's Point (5685m) are issued with green
certificates and those who reached Uhuru Peak
(5895m) receive gold certificates. You now drive
back to Moshi town for a long overdue hot
shower, dinner and celebrations!!
