Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing via Rongai Route 9 Days
The Rongai Route is the only route to ascend up the North side of the mountain, originating close to the Kenyan border. It is one of the less frequently used routes, mostly attributed to the long drive required to reach the gate on day one. This has its advantages though, as it is less crowded and therefore a quieter way to ascend the mountain. It is also the only route to afford you such a close view of Mawenzi Peak, Kilimanjaro’s second highest peak, as you sleep under it on night three. This route meets up with the Marangu route upon descent, allowing climbers a different view of the mountain on the way down. Although Rongai climbers do not experience the rainforest on day one, they are given the chance on the final day of the trek before reaching the gate where the climb concludes.
