Trip Info

The approach to the Machame route is from the southwest of Kilimanjaro. For reasons nobody seems to know, it is nicknamed the “Whiskey” route. Its popularity reflects the high success rate achieved on this route and the fact that it can be climbed in 7 days.

The route ascends up through the jungle to Shira Camp and then traverses south towards Barranco via Lava Tower. From there, you climb up the Great Barranco Wall before arriving in base camp at Barafu. The final climb is via Stella Point and the descent is on the Mweka route.

Climbers sleep in supplied tents at designated campsites and eat meals either outdoors, or, inside a large dining tent. Staff prepare all meals and set up the tents.

Your adventure awaits!
