The Machame route is one of the most beautiful routes to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro. The climb begins in the lush rainforest and follows a path that offers occasional views of Mount Meru, Shira Ridge as well the main summit of Mount Kilimanjaro – Kibo Peak. The Machame route contains more steep passages and higher altitudes than the Marangu route and the Rongai route and is slightly more demanding.

This route is probably the most popular route up Kilimanjaro with roughly 50% of all trekkers using it. The route can be completed on a 6 or 7 day itinerary and the route provides a fantastic landscape and scenery. Both the 6 day and 7 day routes have a great climb high, sleep low profile and summit success rate is high because of this, especially for climbers spending that extra day to acclimatize.

In fact, the 7 day Machame has an average summit success rate in excess of 85% whilst the 6 day option has a 73% success rate on average.
