6 Days Machame Route

Consider the best route compares to other routes on Kilimanjaro. It is longer, amazing scenery with great lush rain forest, great view of Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru in Arusha, which makes this trail unique. The great weather, high percentage of reaching the summit, is another point which makes this route more popular. You can go for 6-7 days. 7 days recommend more as you get time to acclimatize. 6 days also okay if you don't have enough time. The Closest gate from Arusha or Moshi town. Starts at Machame gate and descends on Mweka gate
