Mt Kilimanjaro Climb - 7 days Machame

Also known as “The Whiskey Route,” Machame is one of the most popular routes on the Kilimanjaro. Whether you’re a well-seasoned adventurer or a first-time high-altitude climber, this route is great for both!

Known for being beautifully scenic, the Machame Route also has the best summit success rate. This route allows you to "climb high, sleep low", giving your body time to adjust to the changes in altitude over 7 days.
