Quote: Hike More, Worry Less!!

The Machame route, also referred to as the Whiskey route, is one of the most popular routes on Kilimanjaro and a favorite for us. Machame route is one of the highest summit success rates given the topography and nature of the route which allows climbers to "trek high & sleep low" hence making it a more favorable route for acclimatization. This route offers some of the most spectacular scenery while on the mountain. The Machame route starts in the south west side of the mountain and proceeds steeply north, traversing the Shira plateau and eventually joining the Shira and Lemosho routes just after the Shira cave camp. 

DAY 1 (29th July 2020): ARRIVAL AT THE AIRPORT.

Representative of Sirikwa Travel will meet you at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) and escort you to tonight’s accommodations in Moshi/Arusha. As local Tanzania’s our guides know the country with unrivaled familiarity, so you’ll be in good hands from the moment you land to the moment you leave.

DAY 2 (30th July 2020): Machame Gate (1790m) to Machame Camp (3010m)

Distance covered: 10.8km / 6.7miles

Approx. time taken: 6 hours

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

One hour's drive from Moshi lays the gate to the Machame route, where we complete park formalities, meet our crew of porters and start to climb! The first section of the route climbs steadily and passes through magnificent, dense rainforest. This path is less well-trodden so it can get somewhat overgrown in places and it is often wet and muddy underfoot. 

DAY 3 (31st August 2020): Machame Camp (3010m) to Shira Camp (3845m)

Distance covered: 5.4km / 3.4miles

Approx. time taken: 5 hours

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

Our route continues on up through the forest until we reach the steep ascent onto the Shira Plateau, where there are rewarding views of the mountain. Looking back, you will be able to see Mt Meru rising high above Arusha town in the distance. 

DAY 4 (1st August 2020): Shira Cave (3845m) to Barranco Camp (3960m)                                                                                         

Distance covered: 10.8km / 6.7miles

Approx. time taken: 8 hours

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

Walking now on high moorland, the landscape changes the entire character of the trek. We traverse the southwest side of Kilimanjaro, passing underneath the Lava Tower and the final section of the Western Breach and finally reach camp The day has been spent at altitude (up to 4600m), but we have followed the mountaineering code of 'walk high, sleep low' to aid your body's acclimatization to altitude. 

DAY 5 (2nd August 2020): Barranco Camp (3960m) to Barafu Camp (4640m)

Distance covered: 8.5km / 5.3miles

Approx. time taken: 8 hours

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

Our day starts by descending into the Great Barranco, a huge ravine. We then exit steeply, up the Great Barranco Wall, which divides us from the southeastern slopes of Kibo. It's a climb over rock, not technical, but long and tiring. Passing underneath the Heim and Kersten glaciers, we head towards the Karanga valley, which is our last stop for fresh water before the summit. Scree now forms the terrain as we walk through arid and desolate land towards Barafu camp. 

DAY 6 (3rd August 2020): Barafu Camp (4640m) to UHURU PEAK (5895m) & down to Mweka Camp (3100m).

Distance covered: 16.4km / 9.6miles

Approx. time taken: 13hours – 15hurs

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

We start off at around midnight, and walk steeply upwards to the summit glaciers. We will be climbing screed for 4 to 5 hours but gain incredible height over a short distance. The views are spectacular. We should be on the crater rim at Stella Point (5739m) as the first rays of the sun hit us. Spectacular ice cliffs within the crater surround us and the views to jagged Mawenzi peak and beyond are breathtaking. Another hour's walking takes us to the summit, Uhuru Peak (5895m). We begin our descent by returning to Stella Point and then descending on scree slope and track back to Barafu Camp for breakfast, before finally heading down to Mweka Camp for a long well-earned rest. 

DAY 7(4th August 2020): Trek Mweka Camp (3100m) to Mweka Gate (1630m)
