Tour Plan

DAY 1

We will pick you up from Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO) and take you to your accommodation, where you will meet your mountain guide for a detailed briefing before your hike. You will be able to clarify last questions and our guide will perform a gear check to make sure that you are perfectly prepared for your hike. You can also rent additional gear in case that anything is missing. The remaining day is at leisure.

DAY 2

You will be picked up at your hotel at around 09:30am and transferred to the Lemosho gate located on the western side of Kilimanjaro. After the registration process you will still start our climb steadily through the forests of the Lemosho glades to reach Big Tree camp where you will be spending the night.

Distance covered: 7km / 4.3mi Approx. time taken: 4 hours

DAY 3

Today you will cover a lot of ground as you trek across a plateau of grassy moorland and heather scattered with volcanic
rock formations. We will trek through Shira 1 Camp from where there are often views of Kibo Peak floating on the clouds as
we head towards our destination which is Shira 2.. We gain a reasonable amount of altitude as we head towards Shira 1
and parts of the route are fairly steep. As you proceed towards Shira 2 you will get the chance to view the Northern Ice
fields from the western side of the mountain with some unusual views of Kibo. Our steady climb across the moorland of the
Shira Plateau will help with acclimatization and we enjoy great panoramic views.

Distance covered: 16.5km / 10.3mi Approx. time taken: 9 – 11 hrs

DAY 4

Your trek starts with an ascent with far-reaching panoramic views, walking in to the climatic zone of the upland desert and on the lava ridges beneath the glaciers of the Western Breach. You will reach the distinct pinnacle of the Lava Tower (4640m), our high point for the day and a great place to enjoy your lunch. In the afternoon we make a steep descent to our camp for the night, located in the base of the Great Barranco Valley (3960 m), sheltered by towering cliffs but with extensive views of the plains below.

Distance covered: 10km / 6.2mi Approx. time taken: 7 hrs

DAY 5

Our day starts by descending into the start of the Great Barranco, a huge ravine. We then exit steeply, up the Great
Barranco Wall, which divides us from the southeastern slopes of Kibo. It’s a climb over rock, not technical but long and tiring. Passing underneath the Heim and Kersten glaciers, we head towards the Karanga valley. From here we have a steep climb up from Karanga valley to our night’s camp at Karanga camp, set at 3963m. For those feeling strong we will go for a mid-afternoon acclimatization trek up to around 4200m before descending back to camp for the night.

Distance covered: 5.5km / 3.4mi Approx. time taken: 5 hours

DAY 6

After a good night’s rest and breakfast, we set off on our walk to Barafu camp at 4640m. The climb will take us across desolate scree slopes with no vegetation around us at all. It’s a tough steep walk made more difficult by the altitude. On night and day ahead. It is important to keep hydrated and warm. We have an early dinner and then try to get some sleep as we will be getting up at between 11pm and 12pm to start the climb to the summit.

Distance covered: 3km / 1.9mi Approx. time taken: 3 hours

arriving at camp we eat and spend the afternoon resting as we prepare for a long

DAY 7

The day is left free to wind down after your hike and before your flight home. Depending on flight times you could go and explore Moshi town, have a good cup of freshly brewed Kilimanjaro coffee or buy some souvenirs before heading to the airport.
