Rongai – Kilimanjaro Route

Route Overview

The Kilimanjaro Rongai route trek is basically one long hike with a very gentle gradient and a low difficulty level. It is the only route that approaches from the Northern side of the mountain and is less frequently climbed. Only around 4,000 people climb it each year.

The Kilimanjaro Rongai Route Trek is similar to the Marangu route in terms of its lack of climb high sleep low opportunities. It’s therefore recommended to do the seven-day itinerary rather than the six-day one, giving you an important extra day to adjust to the altitude. It’s generally considered a good alternative to the more crowded routes such as the Marangu, especially for those climbers preferring camping over huts.

The route is less crowded, moderately steep, crosses a beautiful alpine desert zone and allows for good views towards Kenya and the Kibo summit. On this route, you return via the Marangu route.
