15 Days Mount Kenya Chogoria Mount Kilimanjaro Marangu Route
Mount Kenya Chogoria Mount Kilimanjaro Marangu Route Safari

Kilimanjaro Tanzania:- Make it to the summit of Tanzania’s 5,895-meter Kilimanjaro, and you’ll be standing at Africa’s highest point. The majestic mountain is Africa’s most visited trekking destination in Africa Mountain Hiking, attracting tens of thousands of tourists and adventurers every year.

Mount Kenya:- A long-extinct volcano, Mount Kenya is Africa’s second-highest peak, at 5,199 meters. Lying just south of the equator, the mountain’s glacial valleys, successive vegetation zones and diverse wildlife will guarantee you spectacular scenery and a fantastic trekking experience. The ascent, however, to the mountain’s steep ice-capped peaks is quite challenging. “Mount Kenya is the most technical, probably, in the East African area.

It is fair to say that all the guides will have a good knowledge of the routes, but only the good guides will have wildlife knowledge and experience of dealing with altitude sickness problems.

Day 10 of the 15 Days Mount Kenya Chogoria Mount Kilimanjaro Marangu Route: Mandara hut (2700m) – Horombo hut (3720m)

From Mandara hut the trail passes through a short stretch of forest, then skirts the base of the Maundi Crater and then emerges into the transition from rain forest to moorland. It is well worth a short detour to scramble up the rim of the Maundi Crater for your first really impressive view of the Kibo Crater. On a clear day, Kibo will glimmer in the distance, showing off her majestic glaciers in the morning sun.

Day 11of the 15 Days Mount Kenya Chogoria Mount Kilimanjaro Marangu Route: Horombo hut (3720m) – Acclimatization day

Remember to drink enough water and move slowly! All meals for the day are provided at the hut. Retire to bed early and get a last good night’s rest.

Day 12of the 15 Days Mount Kenya Chogoria Mount Kilimanjaro Marangu Route: Horombo hut (3720m) – Kibo hut (4700m)

After breakfast, continue your ascent into the Alpine desert habitat. The recommended lower route (left hand fork) is much easier and nearly an hour and it also passes the last watering point at 4130m. The summit is now a further 1195m up and you will make your final ascent the same night. Prepare your equipment, ski-stick and thermal clothing for your summit bid. This should include the replacement of your headlamp and camera batteries and make sure you have a spare set available as well. To prevent freezing it will be wise to carry your water in a thermal flask. Go to bed at round about 19h00 and try to get as much rest and sleep as possible.

Day 13of the 15 Days Mount Kenya Chogoria Mount Kilimanjaro Marangu Route: Summit attempt, Kibo Hut (4700m) – Uhuru Peak (5895m) – Horombo Hut (3720m)

You will rise around 23h30, and after some tea and biscuits you shuffle off into the night, and this is where the going really gets tough. The first section of the trail consists of a rocky path to the Hans Meyer Cave (5150m), also a good resting spot. The path then zigzags up to Gillmans point (5 681m), which is located on the crater rim. This section is very steep with a lot of stone screen, requiring a great physical and mental effort. It is the most demanding section of the entire route.

From Gillmans Point you will normally encounter snow all the way up to Uhuru peak (5895m), the highest point in Africa. Weather conditions on the summit will determine how long you will be able to spend, taking photographs, before the 3 hour descent back to Kibo hut. After a short rest you gather all your gear you left behind for the ascent and head down to Horombo hut (3 hours) for your overnight.

Day 14of the 15 Days Mount Kenya Chogoria Mount Kilimanjaro Marangu Route: Horombo hut (3720m) – Marangu Gate (1980m)

This is also where successful climbers receive their summit certificates. Those climbers who reached Gillman’s Point (5685m) are issued with green certificates and those who reached Uhuru Peak (5895m), receive gold certificates. You now drive back to Arusha for a long overdue hot shower, dinner and celebrations!! Overnight at a budget hotel
