Day 1: Machame Gate/Machame Camp
After breakfast, start with a drive to Machame gate. Begin trekking through the rain forest on a winding trail for 5-7 hours, then continue past the first hut to the Machame hut Campsite at 3100m for dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Machame Camp/Shira Camp
After breakfast, leave the glades of the rain forest and continue on an ascending path, crossing a little valley and walking along a steep rocky ridge covered with heather until the end of the ridge. The route then turns west onto a river gorge at 3658m (5-7hours) for dinner and overnight at the Shira hut campsite at3800m.

Day 3: Shira Camp/Barranco Camp
From the Shira plateau, continue trekking east towards the lava tower called (the shark’s tooth”). Shortly after the tower, you come to a junction leading to the arrow glacier. Continue to Barranco hut campsite at 3950m for dinner and overnight (5-7hours walking).

Day 4: Barranco Camp/Karanga Valley Camp
After breakfast start with a tailspin into the Gorge, before you climb its eastern wall and you will delight in views of Kilimanjaro’s ice fields, an equatorial anomaly. Go on hiking until you reach your camp in Kilimanjaro Karanga Valley at 13,900 feet, (4-5 hours of walking).

Day 5: Karanga Valley Camp/Barafu Camp
After breakfast hike through the Karanga Valley, the trail turns steadily uphill, following the lava ridge to the Barafu camp. The temperature will grow colder and the landscape more sparse as we approach Barafu Camp. Barafu Camp is set on a bantam, exposed flat area on a ridge, acting as a base camp from which you will make your summit attempt at midnight. Barafu camp is at 15,200 feet, ( 6-7 hours of walking).

Day 6: Barafu Camp/Uhuru Peak (Roof of Africa)
Just after midnight trek to Stella point (5745m) on the way to the summit, the UHURU peak, and this part of the climb takes about 8hours. Here you will have reached the highest point in Africa (5895m)! From the summit, descend to Mweka hut campsite at 3100m for dinner and overnight. (5-hours walking)

Day 7: Mweka Camp/Mweka Gate
This day is spent descending to the Mweka park gate (3-4hours). When you get to the gate you will be awarded your climbing certificate and thereafter your driver will be there ready to transfer you to Rift valley lodge for dinner and overnight.
