Ascensión al Kilimanjaro / Itinerario

Itinerario propuesto ? Ruta Marangu

Day 1: Marangu Gate (1,830m/6,000ft) to Mandara Huts (2,700m/8,900ft)

Elevation Gain:  870 metres / 2,900 feet

This morning you will be met by your head guide.  Leave Moshi and drive for approximately 45 minutes to the Marangu gate.  After registration, begin trekking through lush undisturbed forest where you may be lucky enough to see Colobus monkeys.  The path gradually climbs to your camp at Mandara Huts, a trek taking approximately 4 to 5 hours. Mandara Huts is a group of wooden A-framed huts in a forest clearing.  Each hut features 6-8 sleeping bunks with solar generated lighting.  The total capacity of the camp is 60 climbers. Water is piped into the camp from springs above and there are flush toilets behind the main hut.  The volcanic remains of Maundi Crater are nearby, and make a good afternoon excursion. Alternatively simply rest and enjoy the beautiful forest around you.

Day 2:  Mandara Huts (2,700m/8,900ft) to Horombo Huts (3,720m/12,200ft)

Elevation Gain:  1,020 metres / 3,300 feet

From Mandara Hut the trail climbs steeply through a short stretch of forest, soon emerging into grassy moorland.  On a clear day, you will catch your first glimpse of Kibo, the summit cone of Kilimanjaro, and the jagged second peak Mawenzi. We climb steadily through the moorland zone, containing giant heather and occasional groundsel which can reach heights of up to 5 metres.  After around 4 to 6 hours walking today you will reach the hut complex at Horombo where you will have hot washing water, dinner and overnight. Horombo is a village of huts perched on a small plateau with buildings similar to Mandara, but with a total capacity of 120 climbers!

Day 3:  Acclimatisation Walk  

Today you can have a lie in, as you will be staying at Horombo Huts for a second night and therefore do not need to pack!  This extra day and night will aid your acclimatisation and is therefore very important in preparation for your summit attempt.  The day will be spent hiking towards the seldom visited base of Mawenzi Peak, passing Zebra Rocks en route.  The landscape feels more alpine here and there is a greater sense of peacefulness than in other locations on this route.  Trekking time approximately 4 to 5 hours.

Day 4:  Horombo Huts (3,720m/12,200ft) to Kibo Huts (4,700m/15,400ft)

Elevation Gain:  980 metres / 3,200 feet

After breakfast you will continue your ascent into the alpine desert, heading towards the saddle between Kibo and Mawenzi. The terrain is much more open here and there is a palpable sense of high altitude wilderness.  You will arrive in camp for lunch giving you the afternoon to rest before your summit attempt.

Day 5:  Kibo Camp (4,700m/15,400ft) to Uhuru Peak (5,895m/19,340ft) to Horombo Hut (3,720m/12,200ft) ?Elevation Gain: 1,195 metres / 3,940 feet ?Elevation Loss: 2,175 metres / 7,140 feet

Around midnight, begin the final ascent to Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa. For the next six hours, hike by the light of your flashlight. The ascent to the crater rim is the most challenging part of the entire trek. The trail is very steep until you reach the crater rim at Gilman's Point.  The hike from Gilman's to Uhuru Peak is a gradual climb and, as far as hikes go, not very difficult. The altitude, however, makes the hike long and tiring.  After summit celebrations you will descend to Kibo Huts.  You will eat here before continuing your descent to Horombo Huts.  This will seem surprisingly fast.  The total time spent walking on this day is around 14 hours, so be prepared for a very tough day.  Later in the evening enjoy your last dinner on the mountain and a well-earned sleep.

Day 6:  Horombo Huts (3,720m/12,200ft) to Marangu Gate (1,830m/6,000ft)

Elevation Loss: 1,890 metres / 6,200 feet

After breakfast, finish the trek with a descent to Marangu Gate. Your last hike on Kilimanjaro is a beautiful one, passing through Kilimanjaro's cloud forest. Watch your step during the descent, as the trail can be slippery.  This trek will take approximately 5-6 hours.  At the gate, you will be met and transferred back to Moshi.
