Rongai Route

Kilimanjaro Climb

11 day trip / 7 days Kilimanjaro trekking

The quiet way up...

To climb Kilimanjaro on our 11 day Rongai itinerary (trekking for 7 days), you can join one of many Open Group Challenge climbs throughout the year, departing from the UK. Our group climbs bring like-minded people together to share a Kilimanjaro experience. You can sign up on your own, as a couple or with a small group of friends or family.

The Rongai Route trek approaches from the north and is one of the least frequented trails on Kilimanjaro, which is perfect for those looking for a more ‘wilderness’ experience. It isn't an ‘easier’ Kilimanjaro route, but the first few days are a bit shorter, and the pace is more relaxed - offering good acclimatisation. Through forest, the trail climbs steadily up to Mawenzi tarn in the shadow of Mawenzi Peak, before crossing the barren landscape of 'The Saddle'. From base camp at Kibo it is a tough but rewarding ascent up to Kilimanjaro's summit via Gillman’s Point and Stella Point - where we will feel on top of the world!
