HikingGreat!

It is an amazing trek. Took the Machame route in 6 days. Be ready for long days and the weather can change quickly. Summit night is no joke. It completely worth all the effort.

HikingGreat!

Other than summit day most days are actually fairly short in terms of distance travelled. If you've properly trained at altitude you shouldn't have too much difficulty with this trek as altitude sickness is really the only major obstacle(although the descent is pretty tough on the knees even with poles). I powered through and made it all the way to the actual summit, not just the ridge and had sunrise there by myself. Once in a lifetime experience.

Backpacking

Amazing experience, but you already knew that. Hiked in August 2019 with National Geographic / African Environments. We did Lemosho, then broke off to do the Western Breach route and slept at Crater Camp the night before summit. If the altitude isn’t killing you and you aren’t afraid of a few rock scrambles, then I’d highly recommend. Started at 5AM and summited at 7AM vs. the normal midnight walk. If you’ve trained with a few tough hikes and are generally fit, you won’t find this too difficult. Lemosho is a gradual route and I never felt the altitude until the last night (Crater Camp at 18.5k feet) - hydrate, take your Diamox, and pole, pole. If you’re thinking about doing Kili, go for it. Such an incredibly fun experience.

Late review on Lemosho route. We submitted on Oct 13th, 2019. I feel like our climb was extra hard because of the weather condition. On the night of summit, we had rain, hail, high-wind side sleet, you name it, we faced it. I wish I had taken a picture of icicles on my hair which didn't melt off until we got down to the base camp. Glad I did it; will never go back.

Best trail of them all, according to the locals. It was moderately trafficked, great weather for the most part once we made it above the tree line, very interesting vegetation and absolutely stunning views of the Milky Way! Highly recommend Altezza Travel for the experience. Very professional team and great organization. 6 days, 5 nights and everyone summited successfully on September 29, 2019!

I booked this adventure of a lifetime through Thompson Safaris in September ‘19. The head guide Bernard as well as all the other support guides, crew and porters gave me all the support one could ask for to be able to summit Kili. I also stayed at crater camp after I reached the summit which I would highly recommend. Definitely a must do for any bucket list!

7 day Machame Route with Trek2Kili. Highly recommend. Please make sure if you hike this route or others on Kili that you find a company certified by KPAP (Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project) who ensure the safety of the guiding and support teams.

Did this trip late March while the entire world was going crazy. Amazing experience going from rainforest to wide open high alpine areas to windy and snowy on Summit day. Worth every bit of struggle. Then came down and found the world in shambles and the adventure really started trying to find a way home to Montana.

The ultimate hiking trail! Some of the highlights of the Lemosho route are the initial hike thru rain forest, the Shira Plateau and climbing the Barranco wall to the lava tower. The final climb to the summit began at 10;30pm. We reached Stella point at daybreak, and the summit about an hour later. Conditions were freezing cold with no shortage of ice and snow towards the summit which we reached on January 4th. Lots of loose scree on the descent- poles are a must. We booked with Kandoo and found them to be excellent. Guides, porters, tents, etc. were all top notch.

Completed with Kilimanjaro brothers. One of the most amazing experiences of my life. We did an extra day just to get used to the altitude even though we experienced no sickness up to that point. First few days extremely fun and not that strenuous. Summit night very difficult but you will get there and wow is it worth it.

Completed the 6 day 5 night route via Machame with a successful summit on the 29th of February. Was blessed with outstanding weather minus some downpour between Lava Tower and Barranco Camp. Strongly recommend the team from GAdventures, and our CEO Bruno from the Kili Kings

Amazing adventure! I did the Lemosho route over 8 days with Climb Kili and submitted on Feb 10, 2020. Reaching the summit was one do the proudest moments of my life! We were pretty lucky with weather with minimal rain.. only a few rains during the week. The Summit climb conditions were extremely cold with very powerful winds bringing temp below -20F. I was told this was cold even for Kili, but the mountain is very unpredictable.
