7 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Trekking Hiking Rongai Route is rapidly gaining popularity. Mount Kilimanjaro Trekking or Hiking on Rongai Route is considered to be one of the easiest routes up Mount Kilimanjaro. Mount Kilimanjaro Trekking Hiking Rongai Route is the only route starting from the north side of the mountain at Rongai gate.  The climbing conditions are drier on the northern side of the mountain. Rongai Route has a fantastic sweeping views over the broad flat of Maasai lands. Overnights are spent camping tents. The summit is reached via the east side of Kibo and descending via the Marangu Trek.

7 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Trekking Hiking Rongai Route reaches the summit of Kilimanjaro at the Uhuru peak, reaching a height of 5,895 meters (19,341 feet). The Rongai route avoids the crowded Marangu route on Kilimanjaro, preferring to approach the mountain from the north by the lightly-used Rongai route. The Rongai route starts just south of the Kenya-Tanzania border and has been almost unused for many years because the area was considered sensitive. Now open for climbing once again, experienced guides consider this ascent route to be both easier and more beautiful than the main Marangu trail.

The Rongai route begins in attractive farmland and delightful forest, with the possibility of wildlife viewing, and passes through several different climate zones, adding considerably to the interest of the trek. We also add two extra days to the standard five day itinerary to ensure maximum acclimatization and give ourselves the best possible chance of enjoying the magnificent scenery. The deviation to Mawenzi Tarn is very beautiful and on a little-used trail through moorland. This route retains a sense of unspoilt wilderness and offers a different perspective on Kilimanjaro by approaching it from the north.

Rongai Route does not require any technical skills or special equipment when climbing. However, the safari is not to be taken lightly. Mount Kilimanjaro compared to Mt. Kenya, Africa’s highest Mount Kilimanjaro is a relatively easy climb and the main summit of Uhuru peak (5,895m) can be reached by most climbers. Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest free standing mountain at 5,895 meters or 19,340 feet.
