8 Days of Adventure
The second most popular route for climbing Kilimanjaro
The second most popular route on Kilimanjaro is the Machame which is also known as “the Whiskey Route”. The starting point of the route, Machame Gate and the route offers a wide variety of views, landscapes and experiences. Located on the southern slope of Mt Kilimanjaro, Machame Gate will lead you to the roof of Africa along the foottrail which starts at the tropical forest, then runs through all the climate zones and finishes with the Arctic desert in the summit area. Camps along the trek are favorably located for a smooth and gradual acclimatization transition process. On the 3rd day Machame Route converges with Lemosho and Umbwe at Barranco camp. For this seven-day climb, trekkers have better acclimatization transition.
