Kilimanjaro Climbing Machami Route
MACHAME ROUTE DOWN MWEKA COMBINATION ROUTE 7 DAYS 6 NIGHT.
The first day’s climb is to Machame camp (3,000 m.) To the park entrance, to which transport from the hotel is arranged, the climber enters the rain forest. It is a 5/6 hours walk to the first hut, through verdant scenery. The forest with bird life, and Columbus and other monkeys may be seen.
The second day’s trek to Shira camp (3,800 m.) Is about 7 miles and takes 4 to 5 hours. About half an hour after leaving Machame camp, the climber emerges from the rain forest onto alpine meadow. This is a very pretty day, with splendid views possible of the peaks and of the plains below the mountain. The vegetation is also quite spectacular, especially higher up, where giant lobelias and scenarios may be seen. Higher still, the vegetation becomes thinner, and the effects of altitude, comx`monly experienced as shortness of breath, may begin to be felt.
This is an acclimatization day. You walk from the camp up to lava Tower at 4600m. 3 Hours walking to lava camp for Dinner and Overnight at Barranco camp
DAY 04: Baranko to Karranga valley, Acclimatization day (4200,) Dinner and overnight at Karranga valley
On the fifth day, the climb continues to Barafu camp (4,600 m.) Which is at the foot of Kibo peak? Again, the climb takes about six hours.
On the fifth day, the mountaineer rises at about 1 am. To attempt the summit. The rim of the crater at Stella Point Recognized as the top is reached after a stiff climb up a very steep, loose screen slope. On average, this takes 5 hours then continue for 1.5 hours along the crater rim to attain the summit at Uhuru Peak (19,340 ft. 5,895 m.) Climbers return to MWEKA camp (3,000 m) on the same day.
